Abstract—This work presents a case study that aimed to assess the structural safety of a RC water tank located in Fátima, Ourém Municipality – Portugal. To perform the assessment an initial survey was conducted and supported by a non-destructive test campaign that allowed the development of a numerical simulation that will allow to evaluate the safety level and to support the definition of the structural retrofitting and rehabilitation needs.

Index Terms— water tank, structural retrofitting, in-situ testing, finite element analysis
