OK another dumb question here for you smart fellers. Need some opinions... I have a 2000 bbl API 650 atmospheric storage tank that has water in it with a thin oil pad on top. So, the stored fluid is >98% water. The calc in API 2000 to estimate the required tank venting flowrate due to atmospheric heating of tank and contents is based on the flash point temperature of the stored liquid, i.e. whether it is > or < 100° F. Since the stored liquid is water, what would I use as the flash point temperature? Since water does not off-gas per se, like a HC liquid does, I am thinking this calc does not apply. Opinions? Thanks! Pete

As the semiconductor industry races to keep pace with Mooreâ€™s Law, which regards the doubling of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits, lithography hardware systems are not always able to provide a quality image for creating circuits. Download Now
Current integrated circuit (IC) designs are complex, which can result in different voltages being located close to one another. To prevent time dependent dielectric breakdown (TTDB), it is essential to incorporate space rules within IC design. Download Now
