Performance Based Evaluation of Response Reduction Factor of Steel Staging Water Tank

Authors(2) :-Parth N. Patel, Jignesh A. Amin

Steel staging elevated water tanks are critical structures that are expected to remain operational even after sever earthquakes. The seismic design codes/standards of most countries allow the nonlinear response of a structure through a ‘seismic response factor’ (R). This factor permits a designer to use a linear elastic force based design while accounting for nonlinear behaviour and deformation limits. In this paper systematic approach is used to determine the seismic response reduction factor of steel staging elevated water tank and designed and detailed using relevant IS standards. The study water tanks are analysed using nonlinear static pushover analysis to obtain the capacity/pushover curve. The response reduction factor of considered tanks are evaluated at two performance limit namely member level and structural level respectively.
