Abstract

Storage tanks have been widely used in many industrial particularly in the oil refinery and petrochemical industry which are to store different products such as crude oil or water. There are different types of tank such as fixed roof tank, open roof tank, floating roof tank etc. Floating roof tank is which the roof floats directly on top of the product, with no vapour space and eliminating the possibility of flammable atmosphere. There are various industrial code and standard available for the basic requirement for tank design and construction. Commercial software are also available in the market for the basic design, hence tank designer would rely wholly on the software without detail understanding. Despite of the various standard and code, there is limited procedure and rules in designing the floating roof which result lots of floating roof failure and caused injuries and fatalities accident. Design and safety has been a great concern for the increasing case of fire and explosion due the tank failure. The objective of the project is to study and understand the minimum requirements on floating roof storage tank designations, to design and analyse floating roof storage tank according to code and standard, to develop software (calculator) to compile required calculations in designing the floating and to develop software (calculator) to compile required calculations in designing the floating roof storage tank. The aim of this project is to develop basic rules and procedures, highlighting the concerns in designing, construction and operation of a floating roof.
