This webinar covers the basics of API 650 and API 620 seismic design requirements, a simplified approach to evaluate tanks subject to seismic loading, the derivation of an equivalent static FEA-based approach for evaluating tanks subject to seismic loading, an overview of different method for performing computational explicit dynamic analyses, a brief summary of how to establish site-specific seismic ground accelerations based on geotechnical soil testing data, and a detailed overview of smooth particle hydrodynamic (SPH) analysis techniques for simulating fluid sloshing behavior in an FEA.
