Analytical Investigation of Response Reduction Factor (R) for R.C. Elevated Water Tank with Non-linear Static (Pushover) Analysis
In the present work, an attempt is made to investigate response reduction factor (R) values of different soil types by using nonlinear static (Pushover) analysis for R.C. elevated rectangular water tank structure. All the parameters were investigated by varying properties of soft, medium and hard soils to cover a method of nonlinear static (Pushover) analysis. The zone factor (Z) kept constant Z – III for pandharpur site location and capacity of 150 m3 tank full in condition. This has resulted into SAP 2000 finite element software. The analysis of response reduction factor (R) value was done under three different soil conditions i.e. soft soil properties, medium soil properties, and hard soil properties. Response reduction factor (R) values indicate that R.C. elevated rectangular water tank structure without soil properties behaves quite the one value as per codal provisions.
