Abstract

The performance of very large diameter petroleum storage tanks erected at Ipras Refinery in Turkey are presented. The findings and predictions of the geotechnical investigation carried out before the construction are summarized together with the observed behavior during the water load tests. The results of a post-construction investigation performed to evaluate the observed behavior, and comparisons between the predicted, observed and back-calculated behaviors are presented and discrepancies encountered are discussed.

Performance of Large Diameter Oil Storage Tanks

The performance of very large diameter petroleum storage tanks erected at Ipras Refinery in Turkey are presented. The findings and predictions of the geotechnical investigation carried out before the construction are summarized together with the observed behavior during the water load tests. The results of a post-construction investigation performed to evaluate the observed behavior, and comparisons between the predicted, observed and back-calculated behaviors are presented and discrepancies encountered are discussed.
