Supposrted Cone Roof Design

Supposrted Cone Roof Design

Supposrted Cone Roof Design

Dear all!

I am quite new in API 650 design, and I have a question about supported cone roof design. Is there any API publicatiosn regarding this issue? (rafters design, compression ring, shell to roof junction, etc) because I think it is not included in API 650. Or perhaps there is any other publication about this topic that is usually used in the industry and generally accepted?

Thanks a lot and best regards,

There is also a suggested procedure and an example for the design of a supported cone roof (for API-650 tanks) in "Design of Pressure Vessels" by Brownell & Young.

A caution... The Brownell and Young method likely does not comply with current API requirements.  I think that book is quite old.  API-650 has had some significant changes to some of the design requirements.
