I'd like to know if it's possible to calculate a supported cone roof by rafters and not columns?
Are you asking if AutoPIPE Vessel can design a self supported roof as opposed to a supported roof? Then yes AutoPIPE Vessel can do so by checking the correct radial button in the Detail tab of the roof component dialog.

These tanks Named Supported, So " self-support" is not applicable.
Please explain how these tanks should be modeled in autopipe?
Thank you very much! Useful info!
