Poor specification can lead to subsurface stormwater tank failures from either short term dynamic or long term dead loads.
In Australia, no standards govern the strength of plastic, underground stormwater tank systems. This can present difficulties for engineers who need to ensure tanks meet a project’s strength, durability and quality requirements.
This whitepaper provides engineers with a robust solution to this common challenge.
Inside this whitepaper you will find:
Ways in which plastic tanks vary across
Key factors to consider when determining the strength of a stormwater tank
Internationally recognised guidelines
Best practice methods and a low risk design tool for validating the strength of tanks
