HOW TO CALCULATE WATER TANK SIZE AND CAPACITY

In commercial building usually the design data of
water tank is provided by the design engineer. But most of the time we want to
construct residential building. at the time water tank design is required.so
the topic we are discussed about water tank design of residential building .

we consider 5 members in this family so the water tank is
designed to for this data.

in India per capita demand=135 liters/day/person

135 liters of water is required for one person per day

Total amount of water is required for 5 members= 5x135

=675
liters

Unit weight of
water
=1000
liters/m3

Assume the depth of water
tank
=0.6m

675 liters=0.675 m3

Volume of water tank
=0.675 m3

L X B X D =volume (0.675 m3 )

L
X B X 0.6 =0.675

LB =0.675/0.6

LB =1.125

We want any one dimension

So
that L =2 xB

2 B2 =1.125

B2
=1.125/2

B2
= 0.5625

B
=0.75 m

L
= 2B

=2
x 0.75

L
= 1.5 m

Provide free board =0.2m

__RESULT__

Size or water tank

Length=1.5m

Breadth=0.75

Depth=0.8 m(0.6m+free board 0.2m)
