Abstract: This paper presents the study deals with the performance of elevated reinforced concrete overhead water tanks to seismic and wind forces. An elevated overhead water tank is a storage structure constructed at a certain elevation to hold water and supply safe drinking water. It is a time-consuming task to design and cost estimation of overhead water which have needs lot of expertise. These elevated water tanks are especially vulnerable to horizontal forces such as wind and earthquakes. Tanks of various shapes are considered in the present study. Circular, Rectangular and Intze Elevated water tanks are modelled in STAAD.PRO software. Gravity analysis, Seismic analysis and wind analysis are performed on the modelled structure. From the analysis results, the seismic parameters such as displacements, base shear and overturning moments are examined deeply and compared, and cost analysis is performed for all the three water tanks and compared.
