I noticed none of the strength design combinations in section 2.3 have combined Fluid loads, F and Earthquake loads, E. The allowable stress combinations of section 2.4 do include these provisions (Load combinations 5 and 6). Does anyone no why this combination is not included in the strength design combinations. This would seem unconservative to me in the design of liquid storage tanks (where much of the design mass is from the liquid stored). Thank you in advance for any thoughts or guidance.
