Design and Seismic Analysis of Ground Supported Water Tank

6 pagesPublished: July 22, 2017

Abstract

The ground supported tanks are firmly attached with ground and tank walls are subjected to hydrostatic as well as hydrodynamic pressure due to seismic forces. Base of the tank is subjected to weight of water and pressure of soil. Top of the tanks may be covered and is designed by using IS 3370:2009 Part (I, II) [4] and IS 1893:2007 (part-2) draft code[3] is used for the seismic analysis of the tank. This paper gives idea behind the design of liquid retaining structure (rectangular ground supported water tank) using working stress method. This paper includes the seismic analysis and design of the tank. The values are obtained with the help of spreadsheet program. Analysis of ground supported water tank has been carried out and relationship between tank capacity with moment capacity and reinforcement area, base shear with impulsive height and overturning moment with convective height is derived.

Keyphrases: RCC water tank, Reinforcement in wall, seismic analysis, Tank capacity, Working stress method
