In this present study aims to evaluate the performance of base isolation device under different intensity blast induced ground excitations for an elevated water tank staging. In this study mainly focused to improve the performance of the base isolator and minimize the damage of the structure. To know the performance of base isolator two models are considered one is fixed base model and another one is supported with base isolator model for both non-linear time history analysis is carried out with the help of SAP 2000 software subjected to four different underground blast intensities. From the analysis, it is observed that by using base isolator supported model structural responsive parameters such as base shear, top storey accelerations are efficiently reduced when compared to the fixed base structure. Hence it is proved that adopting base isolation technique we considerably reduce the damage of the structure subjected to underground blast vibrations.
