How to calculate the load to the vessel?

How to calculate the load to the vessel?


We are trying to put a bridge on the open vessel.
I am wondering how to calculate the proper weight of the bridge which doesn't badly affect the vessel. I am thinking of the calculation of the pressure which loaded in the vessel and compare the number with pressure range of the vessel material. I am wondering if there is any spreadsheet or free software for this kind of calculation.

Thank you in advance for your help!!

RE: How to calculate the load to the vessel?

Suggest that you post on the "Storage Tank Engineering" forum ...

Do you have dimensioned drawings/sketches etc describing what you are trying to do ?

Is the bridge 3 feet ?, 30 feet ? or 300 feet long ?

What kind of loadings will the bridge endure ?.... Is the bridge for an agitator/mixer ??
