single slope bottom tanks

I have questions on single slope bottom tanks, could anybody helps me which foundation style is the optimal for shovel bottom tanks with capacity of 10000 cubic meter?

RE: single slope bottom tanks

For shovel bottom tanks (single slope from one side to the other) concrete ringwall and concrete slab type are quite common, I have also seen stone ringwall foundations. I'd say almost any style of foundation that could be a cone bottom can be a shovel bottom if the contractor is capable and experienced in such.

RE: single slope bottom tanks

Great thanks! I've just seen conical bottom tank on site, could you tell me some places where I may see shovel bottom tanks on site?

RE: single slope bottom tanks

What country / state / province / city are you close to?
Frankly, there is not much to see - they pretty much look like ordinary tanks. It is generally not visible because you can't see very far around the tank and the slope is no different from a normal tank.

RE: single slope bottom tanks

Thanks a lot! I'm in Beijing, China. Most place in China I can play a visit to. Besides, America or Canada are also convenient for me as I have relatives and classmates there. I just want to see the connecting part for bottom-wall shell and the foundation style if possible.
