This project gives in brief, the theory behind the design of liquid retaining structure (Elevated circular water tank with domed roof and conical base). and further guidance on seismic design methods for storage tanks larger tanks, and as such the seismic design for these larger storage tanks.

These tanks may be covered at the top. Provide height of 3. This can be provided by founding the structure on a flat layer of concrete with interposition of some material to break the bond and facilitate movement. Provide overall depth of 35 cm.

One application of these joints is between successive lifts in a reservoir wall. Design a circular tank having diameter of 6 m. Design an elevated rectangular tank 12 m.

For sections of thickness greater than mm, and less than mm the minimum reinforcement in each of the two directions shall be linearly reduced from 0. H2 T.c.c.overhead at Point Dt 0.


Product Description We were selected as Consultants for the design of the r.c.c.oveehead tank through competitive bidding for various projects. Let ‘P’ be the total wind force acting at height ‘h’ from the base and r1, r2…….

Overhead RCC Water Tanks Construction

Applying these four conditions, four equations will be obtained which can be solved and constants C1, C2, C3 and C4 evaluated. At bottom, slope and deflection will r.c.c.voerhead zero.

It is assumed that whole load from roof is transferred to long walls. Direct compression in long walls. Where sliding joints are provided between the walls and either the floor or roof, the provision of movement joints in each element can be considered independently.

M at various heights and shear at base. The walls of the underground tanks are subjected to internal water pressure and outside earth pressure.

Actually reinforcement is provided on both faces vertically as well as horizontally, There will be direct tension in long walls due to pressure on short watwr but its effect is negligible. These coefficients are given in Table The staging has to carry r.c.c.oveehead of water and tank. The tanks may be covered on top.


The maximum length desirable between vertical movement joints will depend upon the tensile strength of the walls, and may be increased by suitable reinforcement.

For small capacities circular tanks prove uneconomical as the formwork for circular tanks is very costly. It is a movement joint with deliberate discontinuity without initial gap between the concrete on either side of the joint.

Bottom one metre acts as cantilever and remaining 3 m acts as slab supported on long wter. They should also be designed for upward load if the liquid retaining structure is subjected to internal gas pressure. Steel in Vertical Span x For -ve B. In smaller tanks main reinforcement is placed near the outer face. This will r.c.c.overhezd taken by wall and the distribution steel provided.
