I just wanted a quick discussion on the input of Tank Bottom Plate diameter and Annular Plate measurement. My main question is: are these supposed to overlap in the model? Under bottom plate entry it asks for the "Internal diameter" dimension. Then under the Anchor window it asks for the Annular plate dimension, which, in the sketch beside the data entry it says that this length can extend past the internal diameter of the tank?
In my picture below if I enter the Annular plate dimension as 84 and internal diameter dimension for the bottom plate as 4572 i get an error for the annular plate being too small?
So how are we best to model this situation?
j'ai un problème concernant le calcul des tiges d'ancrage je vous prie de m'aider
Hello please include an anchor in your design, it needs to be defined hence the error. Please refer to the tank example in the example folder , path should be something like follows:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\AutoPIPE Vessel_41.04.xx.xxx\Examples\Vessel Example Models\Tank
double click on the anchor ring at the bottom so that you can know how to model the anchor.
