FEA Case Study

Design Verification of an Oil Storage Tank Using FEA, Germany

The Client
Technical Design Solutions Provider Firm, Germany

The Objective

To Develop a Storage Tank Design to Resist Stress and Deformation Due to the Weight of the Oil Using FEA.

The Solution

The existing storage tank design was modified by providing additional cross support bars at the tank side walls, which provided structural strength and reduced the stress and deformation values considerably.

Engineering Solution

The existing storage tank design was first analyzed to measure the stress and deformation values, considering the weight of the oil. Despite the stress values obtained were within the permissible range, the deformation was present and needed to be addressed.

To minimize the deformation values, a new tank design was proposed, which included the application of additional support bars at the tank walls. The additional support enhanced the storage tank strength with 45% reduction in deformation values.
