## Diameter of Tank Bottom Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Bottom Plate Diameter = Nominal Tank Diameter+2*(Minimum Thickness of Shell)+2*(Total Extension)
Db = D+2*(tminimum)+2*(x)
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Bottom Plate Diameter - (Measured in Millimeter) - Bottom Plate Diameter refers to the size of the circular or circular-shaped plate that is used to transfer loads from a structural beam to a foundation.
Nominal Tank Diameter - (Measured in Millimeter) - The nominal tank diameter is a measure of the size or capacity of a tank. It refers to the diameter of the tank as designated by the manufacturer or designer.
Minimum Thickness of Shell - (Measured in Millimeter) - Minimum Thickness of Shell without corrosion allowance for each component of a shell based on the appropriate design code calculations and code allowable stress.
Total Extension - (Measured in Millimeter) - Total Extension is defined when an object increases in length, and compression happens when it decreases in length.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Nominal Tank Diameter: 3000 Millimeter --> 3000 Millimeter No Conversion Required
Minimum Thickness of Shell: 5 Millimeter --> 5 Millimeter No Conversion Required
Total Extension: 120 Millimeter --> 120 Millimeter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Db = D+2*(tminimum)+2*(x) --> 3000+2*(5)+2*(120)
Evaluating ... ...
Db = 3250
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
3.25 Meter -->3250 Millimeter (Check conversion here)
3250 Millimeter <-- Bottom Plate Diameter

Maximum Deflection of Corroded Plate Thickness
Deflection = (Constant for Maximum Deflection*Hydrostatic Pressure*Longer Side of the Tank^(4))/(Modulus of Elasticity*(Plate Thickness-Corrosion Allowance)^(3))
Bending Moment to size Vertical Stiffeners
Bending Moment of Vertical Stiffeners = 0.0642*Hydrostatic Pressure*Spacing Effective Length*(Height of Tank)^(2)
Diameter of Tank Bottom
Bottom Plate Diameter = Nominal Tank Diameter+2*(Minimum Thickness of Shell)+2*(Total Extension)
Minimum Width of Annular Plate
Minimum Width of Annular Plate = Total Extension+300+Height of Tank+Length of Lap Weld
Section Modulus of Stiffener
Section Modulus = Bending Moment of Vertical Stiffeners/Maximum Allowable Bending Stress
Circumference of Bottom Plate
Circumference of Bottom Plate = pi*Bottom Plate Diameter

## Diameter of Tank Bottom Formula

Bottom Plate Diameter = Nominal Tank Diameter+2*(Minimum Thickness of Shell)+2*(Total Extension)
Db = D+2*(tminimum)+2*(x)

## What is Design Thickness?

Design thickness is a term used in structural engineering to refer to the thickness of a structural element (such as a beam, column, or plate) that has been calculated or specified based on the design requirements of the structure. The design thickness is the thickness that has been calculated or specified based on the structural requirements of the beam and the strength and deformability of the soil or foundation on which the beam will be supported. The design thickness of a bottom plate is typically determined by a structural engineer or using structural engineering software, and is used to ensure that the bottom plate is able to safely carry the loads that will be applied to it during the life of the structure.
