As known from past upsetting experiences, adequately designed elevated water tanks were heavily damaged or collapsed during earthquakes. This might be due to the lack of knowledge regarding the behaviour of supporting system of the tank; and also due to improper geometrical selection of staging patterns. For certain proportions of the tank and the structure, the sloshing of the water during earthquake may one of the dominant factor. In this paper, the seismic behavioural effect of elevated circular water tank is studied for constant capacity and constant number of columns; for various types of staging arrangement in plan, and variation in number of stages in elevation by using finite element method based software SAP2000. Two mass idealizations suggested by Gujarat State Disaster Management Authority (GSDMA) guideline are considered here. Total nine combinations were analysed using Response Spectrum Method (RSM) and results are presented. Radial arrangement with six staging levels is found to be best for ten numbers of columns.
