Challenge

Designing a storage tank in today’s engineering world is a time consuming process filled with many calculations. The tank design must be safe, cost effective and be able to function over the entire desired service life.

Background

Solution

Onward used a mechanical design methodology for the container/stiffeners so it can be safe, cost effective and function over the entire desired service life. A tank design calculator is developed using design algorithms allowing user to input minimum values and get the results directly by calculating weight, area, forces, bending moments, number of stiffeners & spacing etc. for tank.

Background

Result

Customer team now uses Automated Tank Design Calculator which gives result directly without any manual calculation reducing the design time by over 90% and eliminates manual errors.
