A tank fabricator in North America wanted us to assess the safety of a storage tank as per ASME Code. The customer was in the process of bidding for a project that has FE results of the equipment as a pre-requisite submission. The customer wanted Jilbee to work in a very challenging time schedule for completion of the FE analysis.

FEA analysis and post-processing in this project was performed.
Stresses and buckling factor were within allowable criteria as per ASME Codes, thus making the tank safe to use. Our report helped the customer submit his bid documents within the submission deadline.
