This Standard provides design information that meets the requirements of the New Zealand Building Code and is intended to be used by engineers and others involved in new storage tank projects. It provides a basis for designing concrete structures for the storage of liquids that will require only limited periodic maintenance to remain serviceable for their design life, and will not allow an uncontrolled, rapid loss of the liquid contents in extreme events such as a major earthquake.
