Seismic Response Analysis of Large Liquid Storage Tank Considering Fluid-Structure Interaction


Article Preview

To large liquid storage tank, based on the potential flow theory, considering fluid-structure interaction, the potential-based elements and the shell elements are used to simulate the liquid and the tank, respectively. Using the displacement-velocity potential finite element method formulas, the seismic response analysis method of the liquid storage tank is obtained, and is implemented based on the ADINA program. Some useful conclusions of the tanks under the earthquake loadings are obtained through two examples, which provide the reference for the seismic design theory and the seismic performance, and provide the analysis approach for the damage behavior and loss assessment of liquid storage tank.
