Assignment 1

Tank wall 1 (T1a)

Description of model:
A Circular water tank has a diameter 16.67 m with a height of 5 m. Wall is having a uniform
thickness of 300mm. Grade and density of concrete are M30 and 25kN/m3 respectively. Wall
is considered with boundary conditions of fixed at bottom and free at top, as shown in Fig.1a.

Fig1.a Fixed Base

Mathematical Modeling:
A cantilever wall is modeled considering 1m width and taking depth as thickness of wall.
Due to the virtue of curvature, wall will not have simple cantilever behavior. The wall is
modeled as a beam on elastic foundation, the wall is divided in to ten equal parts and springs
are assigned at each node. Loading is taken as water pressure distribution; mathematical
model is shown in Fig.1a.
Modulus of sub grade reaction Ks
Where E = 5000fck = 500030 = 27386
N/mm2. T=thickness of the wall= 300mm

In our case H=5m Number of parts =10 Spacing=0.5m

Therefore K=59.2x103.

Tank wall (T5b)

Description of model:
Description of model:

A Circular water tank has a diameter 16.67 m with a height of 5 m. Wall is having thickness
of 300mm. Grade and density of concrete are M30 and 25kN/m3 respectively. Wall is
considered with boundary conditions of hinged at bottom and free at top, as shown in Fig.5b.

Fig5b Hinged Base

Mathematical Modeling:
A cantilever wall is modeled considering 1m width and taking depth as thickness of wall.
Due to the virtue of curvature, wall will not have simple cantilever behavior. The wall is
modeled as a beam on elastic foundation, the wall is divided in to ten equal parts and springs
are assigned at each node. To account for the increase in the stiffness due to the platform at
the top, an additional spring is modeled. There will be a moment due to the platform.
Loading is taken as water pressure distribution; mathematical model is shown in Fig.5b.
