ABSTRACT
Ground-supported tanks are used to store a variety of liquids. The fluid was developed the hydrodynamic effects on walls and bottom of tank during an earthquake. This paper presents fluid behavior during an earthquake using numerical model of seismic response of fluid in rectangular tank - the endlessly long shipping channel using of Finite Element Method (FEM) in software Adina. As the excitation input we consider horizontal earthquake load given by the accelerogram of the earthquake in Loma Prieta, California (18.10.1989).

Keywords: fluid, earthquake, Finite Element Method (FEM)
