Abstract: Following a brief review of the hydrodynamic effects induced by a vertical component of ground shaking in liquid-filled, circular, cylindrical, steel tanks that are rigidly supported at the base, the effects of soil-structure interaction on the response of such systems are examined, and numerical data are presented with which the critical design forces for both rigidly and flexibly supported tanks may be evaluated readily.
