RE: elevated swimming pool Galambos (Structural) 19 Jun 06 13:15 funny note on the design of swimming pools.  our firm designed a pool with an observation room for a local high school several years ago before i was employed there.  the shockwave from the first person to dive into the pool shattered the glazing in the observation room, nearly emptying the pool.   RE: elevated swimming pool seattlemike (Structural) 19 Jun 06 15:13 A swimming pool could actually help for seismic, acting as a Liquid Damper.
RE: elevated swimming pool civilperson (Structural) 19 Jun 06 15:25      The load factors in ACI 318-05 have U=(D + F) in EQ 9-1.  The other combinations have U=(D + F + T) + (L + H), EQ 9-2.  Only using Appendix C - Alternative Load and Strength Reduction Factors shall the (F) be added to all loading combinations that include L (and the higher phi factors for shear and torsion).
     It will not fall down using higher load factors or "durability" factors of ACI 350 but the owner may protest the added cost from the the code required minimums and engineering judgement is no protection to "errors or omissions" suits in a court RE: elevated swimming pool miecz (Structural) 19 Jun 06 16:13 SlideRuleEra

Every pool I've been in (I swim laps for exercize) has a spillover that limits the high water level.  I was assuming this pool has such a device.

Strength is not the rational for the durability factor of ACI 350.  It's watertightness.  The factor is introduced to limit crack widths under service loads.

The recording of the engine remains by LAMP divers resulted in measurements of a 26-inch bore and a 30-inch stroke. These dimensions are a perfect match with the schematics for the single-expansion steam engine built by the Neafie & Levy yard in Philadelphia as listed in the 1882 survey produced when Commodore was first registered. This data, when considered with the accumulated evidence gathered to date, finally substantiated the identification of this sunken vessel as the Commodore beyond a reasonable doubt.

While PILPA has recently relinquished its share of the wreck's title to Don Serbousek, the Ponce Inlet Light Station continues to serve as a depository and conservation facility for Commodore artifacts and maintain a permanent display on the shipwreck at the Principal Keeper's Dwelling.
