I have been discussing starting a new working relationship with the engineering manager for an oil & gas company where I would be designing foundations for storage tanks constructed of all materials holding water & hazardous/non-hazardous materials. I am somewhat familiar with ACI 350, but was wondering if there was a 'catch all' for storage tank design references. For example, with building structures, I can go the IBC and it will reference ASCE-7, ACI-318, AISC, etc. where I can find all relevant code requirements for anything I am designing. Basically, if I didn't know where to find something, I could start in the IBC and work my way down to the reference or design guide necessary for the topic at hand. Is there anything like this for storage tanks?
