The distance between two longitudinal seams in the adjacent shells shall not be less than 5t where t is the thickness of the thicker joint as per API-650, I wanna know what should be the distance between two longitudinal seams if they are in the same shell? off course it depends upon the available sizes of the plates but how much at least it should be ?
ASME or API does not give any referrence regarding this issue.
