CONCRETE STRUCTURES FOR RETAINING LIQUIDS
Active, Most Current
Description / Abstract:
This Standard specifies requirements for concrete structures and
members that include reinforcing steel or tendons, or both, used
for retaining liquids at ambient temperature.
(a) with a characteristic compressive strength at 28 days (f ′c) in the range of 20 MPa to 50 MPa; and
(b) of saturated, surface-dry density in the range of 1800 kg/m3 to 2800 kg/m3.
The Standard does not apply to the design of—
(ii) aqueducts, hydraulic tunnels or similar structures;
(iii) small septic tanks (see AS 1546.1);
(iv) portable precast concrete water tanks of less than 25 000 L capacity;
(v) fibre-impregnated concrete that does not comply with the design requirements and procedures of AS 3600; or
(vi) precast concrete pipes (pressure and non-pressure) (see AS 4058).
