9-1). 0 load factor should be used. Due to vapor generation during a spill, negative pressure from vacuum is not a credible event during the spill and the spill + SSEaft event. Therefore, the Requirements for Concrete Structures for Containment of Refrigerated Liquefied Gases (ACI 376-11)47 Code Commentary load factor should be reduced to zero for vacuum loading. 2 load factor for the OBE loading condition is per ACI 350, Eq. (9-2) to (9-5). 3. 2 load factor for all normal thermal effects is per ACI 350, Eq.

1R contains a chart that is useful in the evaluation of the chemical effects on concrete, rate of attack, and proper methods for mitigating exposure. PCA (1986) also provides guidance on various substances that attack concrete and protective systems for the concrete. 10 Fire resistance—The concrete shall be designed to avoid explosive spalling. 7 of NFPA 59A along with methods of fire protection in Chapter 13 and Appendix A of the same document. That information can also be applied to refrigerated liquefied gas (RLG) tanks.

4 Creep and drying shrinkage—Estimations of creep and drying shrinkage shall be based on the most probable values of such effects in service. The value of concrete creep coefficient for use in the design shall be that for ambient temperature determined in accordance with ASTM C512. 4 The most probable value, rather than the upper-bound values of a variable, is used in assessing creep and drying shrinkage. 1R. Creep in concrete decreases with decreasing temperature roughly in proportion to the decrease in elastic strain at low temperatures.
