Design and Modelling of Storage Tanks Exposed to Thermal Actions
Abstract: This paper presents results of a research on the effect of a high temperature, resulting from the storage technology, on the utilization level of stresses in selected individual structural components of a cylindrical, above-ground steel tank with a vertical axis and a fixed roof. Computational simulations were performed for the geometry of an existing facility that had failed during the service life. The analyses conducted resulted in specifying members, in the case of which taking into account thermal effects in the dimensioning process is desirable, undesirable or negligible from the point of view of operational safety.
