Causes of collapse and remedy of steel-tank roof structures

Franjo Turčić, Ivo Luketina, Mladen Plišić

Abstract

Results obtained during analysis of the causes of collapse of roof structures of steel tanks are presented, and solutions applied during remedial activities are described. Two heating oil tanks in Zagreb, whose steel structures partly caved in, were used as an example. It was established in the analysis that several errors were made in the initial design, and that these errors concern the completeness and accuracy of static computations for the load bearing structure (inadequate static system and inappropriate load combination).
