RE: Welded steel tanks for crude oil

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
    Not code-related, but if you are interested in the behavior of tanks filled with fluids during earthquakes you might take a look to Newmark & Rosenblueth's "Fundamentals of earthquake engineering".
    It's a classic and it is printed in Spanish too by Diana.

Asunto: Welded steel tanks for crude oil

Dear colleagues,
I have to design 4 circular welded steel tanks for storage of crude oil, each approx. 8 m (25 ft) in diameter and 7 m (22 ft) tall.  I'll be using API 650 (for the first time, actually.  I've ordered it from API), and I was wondering what other codes or standards I might need to use.
The tanks will rest on a concrete base on the ground and they will be erected in a zone of moderate seismicity (zone 2 I guess).
Your comments would be much appreciated.  We have no local codes or regulations to guide designers.
