Storage Tank and Pipeline
Storage tanks located in coastal areas can be damaged by tsunami. The damage can lead a spill of gas or oil, which cause an extensive fire. In this study, bore wave pressure acting on a cylindrical storage tank was measured in a 2-D wave flume. The velocity on the storage site under the condition of no tank and the inundation depth around the cylindrical storage tank were also measured. The experiment shows that the pressure on the side and bottom of the cylindrical tank was not necessarily estimated by hydrostatic pressure.
