The main changes incorporated in the recent revision of the Code of Practice for Liquid Retaining Structures, BS 5337 (1976) are discussed, together with the reasons for these changes as compared with the previous Code CP published in 1960.
BS 5337 contains clauses which permit the use of limit state design methods for water-retaining structures. There are advantages in using the new method of design and the paper discusses the application of the relevant clauses, and compares typical designs.
