Describes research that evaluated the ability of the present design criteria (API 650) to ensure the desired frangible joint behavior. Particular questions include: evaluation of the area inequality as a method to predict the buckling response of the compression ring; effect of roof slope, tank diameter, and weld size on the frangible joint; effect of the relative strength of the roof-to-shell joint compared to the shell-to-bottom joint. Charts, tables, graphs and photos. References.6.0 API-Tank: A Program for the Design/analysis of Tanks with Frangible Roof Joints Based on the results of the previously described research, it was decided to develop a program to ... In the design module, the user can input tank parameters and API-Tank will develop a design following API 650 guidelines. ... The tank is assumed to rest on a sand foundation with a default modulus of 250 lb/in2/in.
