The design of building structures must fulfil specific regulations, in our case, different building standards, among them Eurocodes. In addition to deterministic procedures in structural design, these standards also allow probabilistic procedures. The embedded tank loaded with soil and liquid is solved by the probability analysis using ANSYS, which contains several probabilistic methods. The reinforced concrete tank is solved by the RSM probabilistic method, which uses the well-known Monte-Carlo method in the background. Input parameters (material properties of soil and reinforced concrete, load - pressure from water, geometric data - change of both wall and tank bottom thickness) are entered into the calculation with certain aberrances allowed by standards in the construction and loading of structures. The results are also sets of probabilistic variables with a certain variance, as opposed to a deterministic calculation, where only one value results. These procedures, which use statistical methods, have been at the forefront in recent decades. At the end of the paper, some results of the analysis of embedded reinforced concrete water tank (deterministic and probabilistic procedure) in state of tank failure on the second limit state are presented.
