API tank foundations (appendix E)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The topic is flat bottom tanks supported at grade.
The 97 UBC (Calif. version) states in section 1634A.4 2. a design basis by 
a national standard is acceptable with the provision that it conform to 
1629A.4 & 1629A.2.  I would like to know if anyone considers the API 650 
(appendix E) an acceptable national standard although the 10th (1998) 
version  does not address the 1629A.4. provisions.  IMHO I think API needs 
another update.
Thanks to all,
Bob Hanson, S.E.
