Studies of aerodynamic interference effect of wind pressure on walls and steel roofs of double-shell tanks
Model of tank with fixed roof placed in working section of wind tunnel
Models of tanks with fixed roofs placed in working section of wind tunnel
Models of tanks with floating roofs placed in working section of wind tunnel
The measurement of wind pressures and corresponding wind pressure coefficients on the external and internal walls. Tests were carried out in two stages: I – model of single tank, II – models of the tanks in group arrangement of two tanks (aerodynamic interference phenomenon). Three positions of the floating roofs were considered in the tests, two distances between the tanks in the interference system were assumed.
