I am trying to analyse a tank which will be supported by four
supports on its sides and bottom of the tank will be about a feet
from the ground.
I found one tutorial on Analysis of a Fuel Storage Tank.
In this tutorial, pressure value is defined as 1 and Y as 0.029 but
it has not been mentioned how to calculate these values for
Can somebody please tell me how these values are calculated.
For my case, I am using a liquid of 16 PPG and tank is 3 feet high.
Static pressure in a tank increases linearly with depth . You
enter a constant in the pressure field for the pressure change per
unit length of depth. The 1 in front of the Y tells the program the
equation will be linear in the form P=k.Y.
