Seismic Analysis and Design of INTZ Water Tank by Using Staadpro

Authors(3) :-Talari Obulapathi, Syed Rizwan, Dr. C. Rama Chandrudu

Water tank is used extensively for storage water, inflammable liquids, and other chemicals. The current analysis and design of supporting structures of elevated water tanks are extremely vulnerable under lateral forces due to wind and an earthquake, By past provided illustration when a great many water tank stagingís suffered damage and a few collapses. The aim of this paper is to understand the behaviour of Elevated Water Tank with the framed staging in lateral earthquake loading using Indian code guidelines by using Staad Pro. By using Rapid Assessment of Seismic Safety of Elevated Water Tank gives the optimum value of Base Shear and Base Moment and hence it is economical. The design based on above gives the most economical section and also it is safe.
