Abstract: Calculation of Crack Width and satisfying the serviceability criteria along with checking for Limiting Moment and Shear plays a crucial role especially in the design of Water tank Container. This paper aims at comparing Service , Ultimate Moments and Hoop Tension for given reinforcement and its spacing corresponding to Container thickness, Clear cover, Grade of Concrete and Grade of Steel based on Crack Width, between IS 3370 (Part 2): 2009, BS 8110: 1997, Eurocode 2 1992-1 (2001), ACI 318. Rather it also fulfill the need of standardization for finding the Reinforcement required based on given Service and Ultimate Moments which will take care of Crack Width
