Abstract : The report describes a program of analytical research to determine the availability of reliable methods for the design of long, large diameter, cylindrical tanks and their supports for transportation of liquids and low-pressure liquified gases in barges for service on rivers or at sea. Loading conditions, existing design/analysis methods, material considerations, and a computer method for predicting stresses are presented. (Author)
