1.0 DESIGN INPUT


Tank Geometrical Data
Diameter of tank, D = 19.39 [m]
Height of liquid, h = 4.275 [m]
Tank height, Ht = 4.275 [m]
Wall thickness, t = 3.6 [mm]

Anchor Bolt
Diameter of Anchor Bolt, db = 25 [mm]
Number of Anchor Bolt, N = 31 [mm]

Material Specification
Minimum Plate Yield Stress, Fy = 248 [kN/m3]
Minimum Plate Tensile Strength, Fu = 400 [kN/m3]
Product Design Stress, Sd = 160 [Mpa]
Hydrostatic Test Stress, St = 171 [mm]

2.0 DESIGN LOADING

Total Weight of Shell = 72.19 [kN]


Moment due to Wind Force, Mw = 124.44 [kN-m]
Moment due to Seismic Force, Meq = 3847.6 [kN-m]

3.0 TANK ANCHORAGE


Anchorage shall be provided to resist each of the uplift load
cases listed below. The load per anchor shall be:

_=/ (API650 Section 3.12)

where:
tb = load per anchor
U = net upplift load
N = number of anchors

From API 650 two load cases were considered for the checking of
anchor bolt

Uplift Load Case 1: Wind

=(4_)/
(API650 Table 3-21a)

where:
Mw = wind moment (N-m)
D = tank diameter (m)
W = dead load of shell (N)

U = -46.51904 [kN] No Uplift Exist!

Uplift Load Case 2: Seismic

=(4_)/
(API650 Table 3-21a)

where:
Mw = wind moment (N-m)
D = tank diameter (m)
W = dead load of shell (N)

U = 721.54 [kN]

tb = 23.28 [kN/bolt]
=_/_
= 47.42 [Mpa]

Allowable Anchor Bolt Stress

=0.8_ = 198.40 [Mpa] (API650 Table 3-21a)

s < sallowable OK!
