How to Calculate Minimum Thickness of Shell at Bottom?
Minimum Thickness of Shell at Bottom calculator uses Minimum Thickness of Shell = ((Hydrostatic Pressure*Nominal Tank Diameter)/(2*Allowable Stress*Joint Efficiency))+Corrosion Allowance to calculate the Minimum Thickness of Shell, Minimum Thickness of Shell at Bottom is used to ensure that the tank has sufficient strength and structural integrity to hold the contents of the tank safely. Factors that may influence the minimum thickness of the shell at the bottom of a tank include the type and size of the tank, the material used to construct the tank, the type of liquid or gas that the tank will be used to store, the pressure and temperature of the contents of the tank, and the expected lifespan of the tank. Minimum Thickness of Shell is denoted by t_{minimum} symbol.
