TRI*TANK650 is a comprehensive software package for the design and rating of welded steel oil storage tanks in accordance with API Standard 650, 8th and 9th Editions. Designs new tanks and rerates existing tanks, calculates shell plate thicknesses and weights, provides detailed tank drawings.
Main Fetures:
- Calculates thickness using variable design point method, one-foot method, and the methods stated in Appendix A and F of the API Std. 650
- Provides option to use roof design guidelines from either API Std. 620 or API Std. 650 for conical, domed, and umbrella roofs
- Provides bottom options: sloped or flat
- Provides wind loading per ASCE 7-93, NBC of Canada, UBC, API Std. 650, or user defined loads
- Provides seismic loading per API Std. 650 or NBC of Canada
- Includes API Std. 650 Appendix M for design and rating of tanks up to 500° F
- Considers Internal pressure per API Std. 650
- Calculates uplift forces and moments for chair design
- Optimizes the number and size of anchor bolts required using built-in anchor bolt material properties
- Calculates minimum base plate thickness and width required while considering the foundation properties
- Calculates minimum wall thickness of nozzles
- Performs repad calculations in accordance with the API 650 and API 620 Standards
- Calculates cross sectional area required for roof compression rings and wind girders
- Provides ability to rerate or to design shell stiffening rings per API Std. 650
- Provides built-in API Std. 650 materials database which can be supplemented by the user for nonstandard materials
- Calculates MAWP and max. liquid height for each pressure bearing component when rerate option is selected
- Considers ladders, platforms, stairways, stiffening rings, and insulation in weight, wind, and seismic calculations
- Enables users to specify different heights for each course
- Calculates edge settlement per API 653, Appendix B
- Calculates column supported conical roof per AISC code
