Thank you. Do those AWWA specs help you design the tank? Because the tank
is already completely designed in steel. I am just required to design the
supporting structure that will put it 72 ft above the ground.
With earthquake (full tank) or wind (empty tank), that is an inverted
pendulum. It has a body in motion inside. What I would like to know is how
to structure the tower that will support the tank and if there are any
simplified methods to solve it.

Subject: RE: HIGH TANK
You don't say which fluid but for water tanks try:
AWWA D-100-96 for welded steel tanks
AWWA D-103-97 for bolted steel tanks
AWWA D-110-95 for wire or strand wrapped prestressed concrete tanks
AWWA D-115-95 for prestressed concrete tanks with circumferential tendons
These can be ordered from AWWA at: www.awwa.org
API has similar provisions for petroleum product storage.
