Part 4.2 of Eurocode 3 provides principles and application rules for the structural design of vertical cylindrical above ground steel tanks for the storage of liquid products with the following characteristics a) characteristic internal pressures above the liquid level not less than 100mbar and not more than 500mbar 1) ; b) design metal temperature in the range of 50ºC to +300ºC. For tanks constructed using austenitic stainless steels, the design metal temperature may be in the range of 165ºC to +300ºC. For fatigue loaded tanks, the temperature should be limited to T < 150ºC; c) maximum design liquid level not higher than the top of the cylindrical shell. This Part 4.2 is concerned only with the requirements for resistance and stability of steel tanks. Other design requirements are covered by EN 14015 for ambient temperature tanks and by EN 14620 for cryogenic tanks, and by EN 1090 for fabrication and erection considerations. These other requirements include foundations and settlement, fabrication, erection and testing, functional performance, and details like man-holes, flanges, and filling devices. Provisions concerning the special requirements of seismic design are provided in EN 1998-4 (Eurocode 8 Part 4 "Design of structures for earthquake resistance: Silos, tanks and pipelines"), which complements the provisions of Eurocode 3 specifically for this purpose. The design of a supporting structure for a tank is dealt with in EN 1993-1-1. The design of an aluminium roof structure on a steel tank is dealt with in EN 1999-1-5. Foundations in reinforced concrete for steel tanks are dealt with in EN 1992 and EN 1997. Numerical values of the specific actions on steel tanks to be taken into account in the design are given in EN 1991-4 "Actions on Silos and Tanks". Additional provisions for tank actions are given in annex A to this Part 4.2 of Eurocode 3. This Part 4.2 does not cover: floating roofs and floating covers; resistance to fire (refer to EN 1993-1-2). The circular planform tanks covered by this standard are restricted to axisymmetric structures, though they can be subject to unsymmetrical actions, and can be unsymmetrically supported.

This European Standard specifies the requirements for materials, design and installation of the insulation of refrigerated liquefied gas (RLG) storage tanks.
RLG storage tanks store liquefied gas with a low boiling point, i.e. below normal ambient temperature.
The concept of storing such products in liquid form and in non-pressurized tanks therefore depends on the combination of latent heat of vaporization and thermal insulation.
Consequently thermal insulation for RLG storage tanks is not an ancillary part of the containment system (as for most ambient atmospheric hydrocarbon tanks) but it is an essential component and the storage tank cannot operate without a properly designed, installed and maintained insulation system.
The main functions of the insulation in RLG storage tanks are:
3   to maintain the boil off below the specific limits;
3   to protect the non low temperature parts/materials of the tank (mainly the outer tank) by maintaining these parts at their required ambient temperature;
3   to limit the cool-down of the foundations/soil underneath the tank to prevent damage by frost heave;
3   to prevent/minimize condensation and icing on the outer surfaces of the tank.
A wide range of insulation materials is available. However the material properties differ greatly amongst the various generically different materials and also within the same generic group of materials.
Therefore within the scope of this European Standard, only general guidance on selection of materials is given.
NOTE   For general guidance on selection of materials see Annex A.

This European Standard is a specification for vertical, cylindrical tanks, built on site, above ground and of which the primary liquid container is made of steel. The secondary container, if applicable, may be of steel or of concrete or a combination of both. An inner tank made only of pre-stressed concrete is excluded from the scope of this European Standard.
This European Standard specifies principles and application rules for the structural design of the “containment” during construction, testing, commissioning, operation (accidental included), and decommissioning. It does not address the requirements for ancillary equipment such as pumps, pumpwells, valves, piping, instrumentation, staircases etc. unless they can affect the structural design of the tank.
This European Standard applies to storage tanks designed to store products, having an atmospheric boiling point below ambient temperature, in a dual phase, i.e. liquid and vapour. The equilibrium between liquid and vapour phases being maintained by cooling down the product to a temperature equal to, or just below, its atmospheric boiling point in combination with a slight overpressure in the storage tank.
The maximum design pressure of the tanks covered by this European Standard is limited to 500 mbar. For higher pressures, reference can be made to EN 13445, Parts 1 to 5.
The operating range of the gasses to be stored is between 0 °C and –165 °C. The tanks for the storage of liquefied oxygen, nitrogen and argon are excluded.
The tanks are used to store large volumes of hydrocarbon products and ammonia with low temperature boiling points, generally called “Refrigerated Liquefied Gases” (RLG’s). Typical products stored in the tanks are: methane, ethane, propane, butane, ethylene, propylene, butadiene (this range includes the LNG’s and LPG’s).
