## Maximum Wind Moment for Vessel with Total Height Less than 20m Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Maximum Wind Moment = Wind Load acting on Lower Part of Vessel*(Total Height of Vessel/2)
Mw = Plw*(H/2)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Maximum Wind Moment - (Measured in Newton Meter) - Maximum Wind Moment is calculated based on a number of factors, including the wind speed and direction, the size and shape of the building or structure, the materials used in construction.
Wind Load acting on Lower Part of Vessel - (Measured in Newton) - Wind Load acting on Lower Part of Vessel refers to the forces and stresses that are generated by wind acting on the surface area of the vessel below its center of gravity.
Total Height of Vessel - (Measured in Millimeter) - Total Height of Vessel can vary widely depending on its design and size.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Wind Load acting on Lower Part of Vessel: 67 Newton --> 67 Newton No Conversion Required
Total Height of Vessel: 15 Meter --> 15000 Millimeter (Check conversion ​here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Mw = Plw*(H/2) --> 67*(15000/2)
Evaluating ... ...
Mw = 502500
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
502500 Newton Meter -->502500000 Newton Millimeter (Check conversion ​here)
502500000 5E+8 Newton Millimeter <-- Maximum Wind Moment

Wind Load acting on Lower Part of Vessel
Wind Load acting on Lower Part of Vessel = Coefficient depending on Shape Factor*Coefficient Period of One Cycle of Vibration*Wind Pressure acting on Lower Part of Vessel*Height of Lower Part of Vessel*Outside Diameter of Vessel
Wind Load acting on Upper Part of Vessel
Wind Load acting on Upper Part of Vessel = Coefficient depending on Shape Factor*Coefficient Period of One Cycle of Vibration*Wind Pressure acting on Upper Part of Vessel*Height of Upper Part of Vessel*Outside Diameter of Vessel
Maximum Wind Moment for Vessel with Total Height Greater than 20m
Maximum Wind Moment = Wind Load acting on Lower Part of Vessel*(Height of Lower Part of Vessel/2)+Wind Load acting on Upper Part of Vessel*(Height of Lower Part of Vessel+(Height of Upper Part of Vessel/2))
Thickness of Bearing Plate inside Chair
Thickness of Bearing Plate inside Chair = sqrt((6*Maximum Bending Moment in Bearing Plate)/((Width of Bearing Plate-Diameter of Bolt Hole in Bearing Plate)*Allowable Stress in Bolt Material))
Total Compressive Load on Base Ring
Total Compressive Load at Base Ring = (((4*Maximum Bending Moment)/((pi)*(Mean Diameter of Skirt)^(2)))+(Total Weight of Vessel/(pi*Mean Diameter of Skirt)))
Thickness of Base Bearing Plate
Thickness of Base Bearing Plate = Difference Outer Radius of Bearing Plate and Skirt*(sqrt((3*Maximum Compressive Stress)/(Allowable Bending Stress)))
Thickness of Skirt in Vessel
Thickness of Skirt in Vessel = (4*Maximum Wind Moment)/(pi*(Mean Diameter of Skirt)^(2)*Axial Bending Stress at Base of Vessel)
Axial Bending Stress due to Wind Load at Base of Vessel
Axial Bending Stress at Base of Vessel = (4*Maximum Wind Moment)/(pi*(Mean Diameter of Skirt)^(2)*Thickness of Skirt)
Maximum Bending Stress in Base Ring Plate
Maximum Bending Stress in Base Ring Plate = (6*Maximum Bending Moment)/(Circumferential Length of Bearing Plate*Thickness of Base Bearing Plate^(2))
Compressive Stress due to Vertical Downward Force
Compressive Stress due to Force = Total Weight of Vessel/(pi*Mean Diameter of Skirt*Thickness of Skirt)
Minimum Width of Base Ring
Minimum Width of Base Ring = Total Compressive Load at Base Ring/Stress in Bearing Plate and Concrete Foundation

## What is Design Height?

Design height refers to the effective height of a structural member or column that has been designed to resist compressive loads. In structural engineering, the effective height is defined as the length of a column or member between its points of zero bending moment, or the length at which the column or member buckles under compressive loads. The design height is an important consideration in the design of structural members, as it affects their ability to resist buckling and collapse under compressive loads. Structural engineers and designers use a range of analytical methods and computer simulations to determine the appropriate design height for different types of structural members, depending on the material properties, loading conditions, and other factors that may affect their performance.
