Solve any one question fromQ.7and Q.8
7 An elevated square water tank is 6m in size and 4 m high. It is supported on a concrete staging of 4 columns. The height of the staging is 9 m. Bracings are provided at a vertical spacing of 3 m. The circular columns of the staging are 450 mm in diameter. The structure is located in zone II. The preliminary dimensions of the elements of the water tank for the analysis may be suitably assumed and clearly mentioned. Assume suitable dimensions for various elements and mention them clearly. Analyze the tank for tank full condition.
