This Storage Tanks course provides the storage tank engineer a practical understanding of the basics of tank design and analysis. Tank component design, material considerations, fabrication, and examination and testing will be covered, with a focus on API 650.
This course covers design loads for tanks, including special requirements for wind and seismic loads and external pressure, temperature considerations related to brittle fracture (LODMT) and elevated temperature tanks, and design requirements for some basic tank designs (e.g., stainless and aluminum tanks, fixed roof and floating roof tanks, and tanks with double bottoms).
The course also gives the student a basic understanding of the evaluation of existing storage tanks in accordance with API 653, including the determination of tank minimum thickness, inspection intervals, repairs, hydrostatic test requirements, and settlement evaluation. The focus of this course is design and analysis requirements, but it also includes practical information that comes from instructors who have worked for Owner-Users as well as in a consulting capacity. The instructors will discuss the background and logic behind the document and provide relevant case histories.
Our training course materials are developed and instructed by subject matter experts – many of whom are principal contributors on the relevant API committees.
Upon completion of the ETI Storage Tanks course, students will have a basic understanding of the following:
This Storage Tanks course is intended for engineers and inspectors working for Owner-Users in the refining/petrochemical and comparable industries. Engineers serving in a maintenance or reliability role whose responsibilities include the evaluation of storage tanks will also benefit.
