The pressure (p) in the water is the same in all direction and is equal to the unit weight (γ) multiplied by the depth (Z); p = (γZ) p = (γZ) The total force due to the water pressure is equal to the integral of the pressure {p = (γZ)} over the area of the swimming pool wall. LINEAR LOAD DISTRIBUTION LINEAR Water Z Floor For a swimming pool depth of 6 feet and width of 50 feet, the total force can be calculated as follows: F = ∫ pdA = A 6 p = (γZ) z =0 y =0 ∫ 50 12 ∫ γZdydz = 2 γyz F = 0.5(62.4)(50)(6) 2 = 56160 lb = 28.08 tons NONLINEAR LOAD DISTRIBUTION NONLINEAR In general, a distributed load can be replaced by a resultant force as follows: The given distributed load Step 1 Reduce the y-dimension w = w(x) = (A)[p(x)] NONLINEAR LOAD DISTRIBUTION NONLINEAR A distributed load can be replaced by a resultant force as follows Step 2 - Determine the resultant force and its location FR = ∫ w( x ) dx L Step 3 - Replace the distributed load with the resultant force FR INTEGRATION INTEGRATION 1.
