AVGAs Tank Design

AVGAs Tank Design

AVGAs Tank Design

I need to design AVGAS storage tank.
it is totally new for me. can anyone please suggest, how to start design

RE: AVGAs Tank Design

There is an older text called aviation fuels by smith, which covers storage. Undoubtedly there is a heap of standards as well.

RE: AVGAs Tank Design

Suggest starting with American Petroleum Institute [API] website.

Aviation Fuels pipeline, transfer, storage, dispersal, in-aircraft fueling, cleanliness, chemical monitoring, electrical/environmental safety, etc-etc-etc is a large topic.
Documents that I referred to are...

API PUBL 1500 - Storage and Handling of Aviation Fuels at Airports [canceled?]
FAA AC00-34 Aircraft Ground Handling and Servicing
FAA AC150/5230-4 Aircraft Fuel Storage, Handling, and Dispensing on Airports

CAUTION. These documents list very important related documents from other organizations and agencies.

I assume that You have inquiries into this topic in the eng-tips.com petroleum forums?
