TANK™ is a comprehensive, easy-to-use program for the design, analysis and evaluation of welded steel oil storage tanks according to American Petroleum Institute (API) Standards 620, 650, and 653.

TANK™ provides owners, operators, and engineering firms with quick and accurate designs for new tank construction and evaluation of existing tanks. 

TANK provides for the design and analysis of wall and bottom plate thickness, supported cone roofs, service and maintenance considerations, and other factors affecting tank design and safety, such as internal pressure, shell settlement, seismic and wind. TANK saves time by letting users select material information automatically from its extensive built-in material databases.

Oil storage tanks have an important role: distributing energy. Just as crucial as their role is the importance of their design. Oil storage tanks are often located near populated regions, and a break in their integrity can cause significant damage to the surrounding area. With the right tools, oil storage tanks can be designed and analyzed in order to help prevent widespread damage.

TANK is oil storage tank design software with the following capabilities:

  • Input data for an accurate analysis of tanks to American Petroleum (API) standards
  • Create user-definable reports
  • Input data as it is required; there are no "out-of-sequence" requests for information
  • Compare calculations against API Standards 650 and 653
  • Perform analysis for seismic, wind, and settlement conditions
  • Access many material databases for standard data
  • Use context-sensitive help features as needed
