ABSTRACT

In recent years, demand of composite materials has increased to a great extent because of their various advantageous properties when compared to other materials such as stainless steel. Fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) is a type of composite material that is used for storage tank construction. The main aim of this research is to optimize the design of a vertical cylindrical fiber reinforced plastic storage tank by varying the thickness of the cylindrical shell. Laminate construction having alternate layers of chopped strand mat (CSM) and woven roving (WR) is used for designing the cylindrical shell. Analysis is done using ANSYS 19 software and the results of the FRP storage tank is compared to a similar storage tank which is made of stainless steel. In this research, storage tank is designed for storing chemical liquids.
