Abstract :

Elevated water tanks are life line structures for society and therefore it is must that they remain functional after earthquake, so water is available for drinking and fire protection purpose. Geometry of these tanks is such that large mass is concentrated at the top and that increases the seismic vulnerability of these vicinity of the earthquake epicenter probability of high damage or col due to the effect of near-fault ground motions which differs from the usual far motions in seismic characteristics. This paper attempts to study the behavior of Elevated water tank subjected to near-fault and far fi seismic response regarding the same. For this purpose elevated water tanks of four different staging heights 12 m, 16 m, 20 m and 24 m with frame and shaft type staging profile are modelled and simulated to near Seismic response of these structures in terms of base shear, base moment and displacement are obtained by performing time that, tanks subjected to near fault earthquake show higher seismic response than tanks subjected to far-field earthquakes.
