Figure 12.15 Design load based on operating water depth - example 4

Consideration should also be given to the worst credible water load, which in this case will correspond to a depth of H, i.e., water up to the top of the tank. EC2 permits the variation of the partial safety factor y depending on the knowledge of the load Gkj.

However, the method of establishing 7 is not given. The basis adopted in BS 8110: Part 2(2) could be used and a factor of 1.15 applied instead of 1.35. In this case the alternative design loading will be as shown in Figure 12.16.
