      The design of liquid tanks according to earthquake has been more popular recent years. Many unwanted events for community have occurred due to damage or collapse of liquid storage tanks. Sortage of drinking water and uncontrolled fires are some vital examples of these unwanted events.

According to above comments, the dynamic analysis of liquid tanks is really very important for the design of this type of structure.

      The main purpose of this study is selected as to give necessary information to the engineers who design the tanks. These necessary informations contain main codes requirements used n the World and Housner method.

Performed study for this purpose has four chapters. In this study, in the first chapter initially it has been given general information’s about liquid tanks and purpose of study. And then literature survey has been presented. It has also been given necessary formulation and design principles for all tank groups except unground tanks in this chapter.

      In the second chapter numerical studies carried out scope of this study are presented. These numerical studies have been done with reference to Housner method, requirements of Eurocode–8 and ACI 350 standards.

The third chapter is devoted to evaluate findings obtained from this study. Findings given in tables have been compared in this chapter.

      In the fourth and the last chapter it has given place to the results and suggestions. It is determined that results according to Eurocode 8 give safier results.
