Notice on Printing Development and Revision Plan of National Engineering Construction
Standards and Codes in 2011 (JIANBIAO [2011] No. 17), the code drafting group
summarizes experience from GB 50341-2003 Code for Design of Vertical Cylindrical Welded
Steel Oil Tanks, refers to relevant international and foreign advanced standards and revises
this code based on extensive investigation and solicitation of opinions, discussion and
This code covers the design of vertical cylindrical welded steel oil tanks in following
main technical aspects, including materials, bottom design, shell design, fixed roof, floating
roof, internal floating roof, appurtenances, wind stable calculation and anchorage design of oil
tank, tank for small internal pressures, design of storage tank for external pressure,
requirements for tank operating at elevated temperatures, seismic design of oil tank, basic
requirement of foundation and basis for oil tank, load combinations, variable-design-point
method on tank shell thickness calculation, calculation for spherical dome roof with rib
reinforcement, allowable external loads on shell openings.
There have been some significant changes in this code in the following technical aspects.
1. Chapter 11 "Wind Stable Calculation and Anchorage Design of Oil Tank", Appendix B
"Design of Storage Tank for External Pressure", Appendix F "Load Combinations", Appendix
G "Variable-design-point Method on Tank Shell Thickness Calculation" and Appendix J
"Allowable External Loads on Shell Opening" are added;
2. Design negative pressure of atmospheric pressure storage tank is revised; positive
design pressure of fixed-roof oil tank is increased to 18kPa and the maximum design negative
pressure is increased to 6.9kPa;
3. Allowable stress of materials is revised; materials of Q235-A.F, Q235-A, Q345-C,
Q345-D, 15MnNbR, 07MnNiCrMoVDR are removed;
4. Minimum sketch bottom plate’s thickness and lap width limit between bottom plates
are revised; extension limit of sketch bottom plates is adjusted;
5. Liquid level and welded joint coefficient are revised in the formula for calculating
shell thickness by fixed-design-point method;
6. Calculation formula for top wind girder section modulus is revised;
7. When fixed-roof oil tank roof and shell use weakly connected structure, the
requirements, roof thickness and calculation formula of effective sectional area are revised;
support guide support structure form and requirements of supporting cone roof and monolayer
spherical latticed shell requirements are added;
8. The requirements by which the floating roof structure design shall comply, limitation
of floating roof compartment to meet the tightness requirements, the relevant requirements of
peripheral seals and static extracting devices are revised; the relevant requirements of wax
scrapers are added;
9. Electrical continuity and static extracting of internal floating roof are revised; the
relevant requirements of compartment welding are added;
10. Specification and dimension of nozzle reinforcement plate, flanged connection shell
1 General Provisions
1.0.1 This code is formulated to standardize design of vertical cylindrical welded steel oil
tanks and make it advanced in technology, cost-effective, safe and applicable and high quality.
1.0.2 This code is applicable to design of vertical cylindrical welded steel oil tanks at and
close to normal pressure for storing petroleum and petrochemical and other similar liquid but
it is not applicable to design of buried tank, tank holding extremely and highly hazardous
medium and artificial refrigerant fluid tank.
1.0.3 Design of vertical cylindrical welded steel oil tanks shall comply with not only this
code but the current relevant national standards.
2 Terms
2.0.1 Annular/sketch bottom plates
The outermost bottom plates at the lower part of shell plates.
2.0.2 Annular bottom plates
Annular/sketch bottom plates with polygonal or circular inner edge.
2.0.3 Bottom plates
Bottom plates except edge plate.
2.0.4 Fixed roofs
Roof around which shell ends are fixed and connected, mainly including types as
1 Self-supporting cone roof. with circular cone roof and supported only by the shell
2 Column-supported cone roof. with circular cone roof and supported by shell, girder,
column or other structure;
3 Self-supporting dome roof. with spherical roof and supported only by the shell
2.0.5 Floating roofs
Roof which lifts with the liquid level, including external floating roof, in an open-top oil
tank and internal floating roof, in fixed-roof oil tank. Generally, the floating roof tank refers
to external floating roof tank if not specified. There are major floating roofs as follows.
