Figure 10.48 shows the schematic of a circular water storage facility resting on the ground surface. The radius of the storage tank, R = 2.5 m, and the maximum height of water, h w = 4 m. Determine the vertical stress increase, Δ σ z , at points 0, 2, 4, 8, and 10 m below the ground surface along the centerline of the tank. Use Boussinesq’s theory [Eq. (10.27)].

Figure 10.48 shows the schematic of a circular water storage facility resting on the ground surface. The radius of the storage tank, R = 2.5 m, and the maximum height of water, hw = 4 m. Determine the vertical stress increase, Δσz, at points 0, 2, 4, 8, and 10 m below the ground surface along the centerline of the tank. Use Boussinesq’s theory [Eq. (10.27)].
