I'm designing a new 120 foot diameter by 60 foot high storage tank, one criteria is that it be OK if the foundation settles eight feet on one side. For this analysis, the foundation is assumed to be rigid. While 8 feet sounds like a lot (and it is!), it's only about 4 degrees over 120 feet. I'm looking for suggestions on what to zoom in on for this analysis - what portions of the tank will experience higher stresses, etc. Thanks
