The paper is dedicated to the analysis interactions between the structure of a field-based cylindrical tank made from reinforced concrete and randomly or unevenly distributed strata of subsoil. The numerical analysis with the use of the Z_Soil software package was carried out to investigate how variable geotechnical parameters demonstrated by subsoil strata with a low bearing capacity and a high deformability influence strain and stress of the tank shell and bottom. The arrangement made up of a cylindrical tank and stratified subsoil (its 3D model) was subjected to the analysis with the consideration of the elastic and plastic properties of soil (the Coulomb-Mohr model). The analysis results, presented as diagrams of the structure deformation and stresses illustrate the uneven settlement of the tank shell and its internal strain.
