    Liquid load inside a tank

    Mandeep Ahuja
      I am trying to analyse a tank which will be supported by four supports on its sides and bottom of the tank will be about a feet from the ground.

      I found one tutorial on Analysis of a Fuel Storage Tank.
      In this tutorial, pressure value is defined as 1 and Y as 0.029 but it has not been mentioned how to calculate these values for different cases.
      Can somebody please tell me how these values are calculated.

      For my case, I am using a liquid of 16 PPG and tank is 3 feet high.

      Thanks
