My company is working on a military project with a 45' diameter fuel storage tank as part of the design. This is the first time we have encountered a fuel storage tank foundation design. The tank will bear on a concrete foundation around the perimeter of the tank and on grade within the ring foundation. Can someone lead me in the right direction as far as designing the perimeter concrete tank ring foundation, checking for overturning during a seismic event, and whether anchorage is required. The only material that has been mentioned so far is the API-650 and our office does not have a copy.
