The CVN impact energy is related to thickness, yield strength, and toughness from which the specimen came. Generally, higher-yield-strength materials will require higher CVN energies to he considered adequate for service. Similarly, specimens from thicker plates require higher test energies to ensure adequacy. The required CVN energies are based upon theoretical considerations of fracture mechanics modified by experience. The required impact test energies for API 650 tanks are shown in Fig. 3. Since the energy absorbed varies with various materials, it is essential to select proper energy values based upon the material being considered.
Nickel-steel, stainless steel, or aluminum is usually selected for these applications. Also, factors such as material availability, fabricability, and cost can affect the choice of materials. 3 Carbon Steel Selection Procedure Steel selection generally entails the following three steps. 1 Determine the design metal temperature The selection of a design metal temperature is the first and most important step in ensuring that materials are selected which are tough enough to prevent brittle fractures under the service conditions.
For the most part, the applicable rules are determined by tank content, size, and location. Several bills have been unsuccessfully introduced into Congress. In 1993 the Daschle bill was introduced to regnlate tanks to include release detection, secondary containment, and inspection. The Moran and Robb bills were also introduced that would impose permit fees, release detection, inspections, and corrosion prevention measures as well as reporting requirements. EPA has also proposed several regulations that affect storage tanks.
