Data Collection

The menu-driven interface of TANK enables the quick definition of input and functions for the accurate analysis of oil storage tanks to American Petroleum Institute (API) standards.

User Interface

The user interface in TANK presents only what is needed at each point of information gathering. You are not burdened with out of sequence requirements for information required for analysis. You are asked only for what is needed, when it is needed.

Analysis Options and Codes

TANK performs calculations in accordance with the latest API Standards 579, 620, 650 and 653. Analysis can also take into account wind, seismic and settlement conditions, plus calculate air venting requirements to API 2000 Section 4.3.

Advanced Analysis and Reporting

After completing an analysis, users can view the results in a tabular report or as a graphic diagram with associated data. For convenience in verifying the results, the output reports reference code sections used where applicable. Quickly send analysis results to output reports or export the file format of your choice (Word, PDF, etc.)

Materials and Codes

TANK includes many databases integral to the package, which makes it easy to select standard data for accurate analysis. A number of U.S. and international structural steel databases are provided. API materials are available.

Quick, Context-Sensitive Help

TANK’s context-sensitive help provides instant technical assistance at the point of input. Pertinent information is presented relative to each selected item, including code references and technical advice. Built-in search makes for rapid navigation.
