I'm building a flotation tank.
To make the frame, I'm thinking of just using wood (10 cm by 10 cm treated pine). like in the design attached. And connecting the pieces of wood with metal brackets and screws.
I have calculated the volume in litres = 1,728 Lt Also, the water is heavily mixed with Epsom salts = 500 kg
So my question, please...
if I make the frame with wood and use some steel wires to hold it around, would that be strong enough to keep the water and floater?
like 2 wires at 20 cm and 40 cm from the ground, tensile strength 2447Kg
So 2 wires will be enough to contain the water, salt and floater?
how to calculate tensile strength on the wire cables?
