Storage reservoirs and overhead tank are used to store water, liquid petroleum, petroleum products and
similar liquids. The force analysis of the reservoirs or tanks is about the same irrespective of the chemical nature of the
product. As from very offensive past records, many reinforced concrete elevated water tanks were collapsed or highly
damaged during the earthquakes all over the world. General observations are pointing out the reasons towards the failure
of supporting system which reveals that the supporting system of the elevated tanks has more critical importance than the
other structural types of tanks. Most of the damages observed during the seismic events arise due to the causes like
improper/unsuitable design of supporting system, mistakes during selection of supporting system, improper arrangement
of supporting elements and/or underestimated demand or overestimated strength. The present work aims at checking the
adequacy of water tank supported on shafts for the seismic excitations. The result shows that structure response is
exceedingly influenced by different capacities of water tank and their one mass and two mass models and earthquake

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
