Flat-bottom cylindrical shell tanks may rock and have a crescent-like uplift part in the bottom plate at the event of a severe earthquake. Effects of the deformed tank bottom plate on the fluid pressure on the cylindrical tank have not been, however, quantified yet. Since the crescent-like uplift part appears eccentrically on the periphery of the tank bottom plate, its mathematical treatment would be troublesome. Regarding a cylindrical tank as a set of pieces of a thin rectangular tank with a deformed bottom plate that correspond radially sliced parts of the cylindrical tank with the crescent-like uplift part in the bottom plate, this paper defines the fluid pressure on the cylindrical tank by calculating that on the rectangular tank. For designer’s convenience, the fluid pressure computed are normalized and depicted in accordance with the aspect of the cylindrical tank and the uplift ratio of the tank bottom plate.
