Abstract

The first tank in Finland for storage of liquefied natural gas (LNG) is currently being built in the port of Pori. It is a full containment tank, capable for 30,000 m3. Two of the many load cases considered in the design correspond to postulated accidents that give rise to complex thermal-mechanical problems and are of especial interest in the Pori tank: the major leak event (in which the liquid at -168ºC contacts the concrete outer tank) and the external fire (with the tank being subjected to large thermal fluxes from a postulated fire). The paper describes the calculations conducted to verify that the design adopted satisfies the success criteria established for those events.
