Hi,
I'm trying to do some stress analysis on a tank filled with water, I have split the walls into sections and applied the appropriate pressures. However, I'm confused as to whether I apply the weight of the water+pressure at that height difference to the bottom of the plate; or will the pressure account for the weight already? But this doesn't seem likely as the formula didn't include mass.
Thank you.
