Abstract 
With the
urge for sustainable, durable and economical construction
various methods for designing, developing and onstructing
structures right from Class I structures like important
service and community structures  Power plants, Reservoirs,
Health care centers, Airports to ordinary structures have been
developed rapidly in the last few decades. Along with these
construction techniques the reliability of present or proposed
structure is determined with various analysis and designing
methods for parameters under consideration. One such reliable
and effective method is Finite element Method. FEM even if
complex and hard for manual analysis but is one of the most
efficient method for software programming.FEM method works
effectively even for complex structure with efficient results
or outcomes.
Such
complex structure can be defined complex because of their
geometrical shape, composition or development of stresses
within them. These strange parameters make many of analysis
and designing classical method less efficient as they are
developed for conventional structures or cases. One of the
example is Circular Presstressing structure like water tank,
“Prestressed” word itself makes designing process unusual
along with analyzing it for stress and bending moment pattern
for same structure before and after designing.
Over
here the analysis and designing is done using Finite Element
Method for Pestressed Water Tank. For considered grid pattern
and assumptions made the results for stress and Bending moment
are checked with the analysis and designing method of Indian
standard code of Practice: 13431980, 3370III,IV,1965. The
aim of the paper is to study the stress pattern for circular
prestressed water tank, designing it based on FEM results and
to check Finite Element Methods applicability for such unusual
construction method. Outcomes obtained after designing and
analysis by FEM marked its high efficiency for such structures
too.
