API 650 & Stainless Steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am curious what is done when someone (a customer) specifies a API 650 tank
but makes wants it from Stainless Steel.  

The last copy I had of API (88 version) did not address stainless steel at
all.  What design stress Sd would be appropriate if the material were 304?

Do the bucking formulas need modifying to reflect behavior difference between
the stainless vs carbon steels?
