design of rc structure
posted by sadanana .
Design a circular overhead water tank of 200 kL capacity overa staging of 25 m.Assume suitable propertions and prepare detailed structural drawings.
What does "overa staging" mean ? What "propertions" are you talking about?
What kind of help do you need?
Is the water tank in RC? Most water tanks in North America are in steel and supported over steel columns, which also gives resilliance when subject to earthquakes.
200kL is basically 200 m³. It could be a cylinder of 6.5m diameter by 6m high.
Be sure to include deadloads, earthquake and wind loads in your calculations. You will need to investigate resonance frequencies and dynamic behaviour under earthquake loads.
Also, include bracing and check buckling for the columns according to the l/r ratios. 25 is quite long.
