Cold formed steel have numerous advantages over other conventional materials as structural components like light weight, high strength & stiffness, easy installation & construction, durable, economical in transportation & handling. In India, Cold formed steel usage is booming due to above mentioned advantages. The concept of cold-formed light steel framing construction has been widespread after understanding its structural characteristics with massive research works over the years. Connection serves as one of the important elements for light steel framing in order to achieve its structural stability. Compared to hot-rolled steel sections, cold-formed steel connections perform dissimilarly due to the thin-walled behaviour. This paper aims to review current researches on cold-formed steel for Water tank. The performance of these water tanks with the design of cold-formed steel panels will be analyzed for various shapes at various heights and the most optimum design geometry & panel will be arrived at using the AISI code for cold formed steel.

Keywords: Cold Formed Steel, Water tank, hydrostatic pressure
