"Theoretically the most economical dimension for a flat bottomed cylindrical tank would be such that the height of the tank is equal to the diameter, but such a tank does not look as well as one which has the height a little greater than the diameter and as the cost will be affected but little by making the height a few feet greater than the diameter, the most economical design will not be strictly carried out in this particular"--Data, page 1.
