Subject: Dynamic Analysis

I am designing a 3 story reinforced concrete structure having 4 meter story
There is a hot water tank at the top of the building with a weight of nearly
110 tons.
The weight of the structure itself is about 300 tons.

My question is about the dynamic analysis of the frame type structure +
water tank interaction. There are some dynamic analysis references about
water storage tanks such as FEMA 368 or ACI. 
But in this problem the theoredical backround differs from those given in
standart references as there will be an interaction.

Any comment would be appreciated.
