Abstract: SThe structural response of any structure is the result of various dynamic phenomenon which lead to vibrations or shaking of the structure , depending on the duration of the ground motion, its frequency and time period. In the present work, dynamic analysis of a typical steel silo is done by using linear Time History Analysis and Response Spectrum method for earthquake Zone V as per Indian code. Two analyses are carried out namely, Time History Analysis (THA) and Response Spectrum Analysis (RSA) using STAAD.ProV8i software. The Load combinations are worked out as per IS-1893-2002. The results in terms of Fundamental natural period, Design Base shear, Lateral Displacements, are compared for the two different silo models considered in the present study. 
Keywords: Plate elements, STAAD. ProV8i, Response spectrum method, Time history analysis.
