Cost Comparative Study of the Circular Elevated Storage Reservoir and Intze Elevated Storage Reservoir with Varying H/D Ratio and Large Capacities
In India more than 34% of its total population lives in urban area. Domestic water is major problem in this area, So as to solve this problem innovative design and solutions to existing problem is essential hence for that study of Elevated Storage Reservoir (ESR) is undertaking. It is a time-consuming task to design and cost estimation of overhead water which has needs lot of expertise.Water is very important commodity in today’s life. In urban areas, elevated water tank play key role in distribution system. There is various type of water such as Rectangular tank, circular tank, Intze tank, shape of tank play important role in cost of the structure elevated storage reservoir. Various researchers have performed analysis on elevated storage reservoir with changing h/d ratio. In this paper, cost of the water intze tank and circular tank is being calculated for various small capacities and varying h/d ratio. In this paper material cost is considered cost study that is cost of concrete and cost of steel. Ms excel sheet. Cost comparative study for large capacity of water tank (400,500) cubic meter both elevated circular tank and intze tank of varying h/d ratio and super structure, sub structure to be discussed below in details. At the result of large capacity (500 cubic meters) elevated Intze water tank is more economical as compared elevated circular water tank is being used for design of circular storage reservoir tank and intze storage reservoir. As the result for 400 cubic meters of elevated water tank when h/d ratio 0.5 is more economical but other h/d ratio (0.75, 1, and 1.25) is elevated circular water tank is more economical compared as elevated water tank.
