Estimating the Service Life of the Equipment in a Fuel Storage Facility Based on Flexible Tanks

Parameters are proposed for estimating longevity of fuel storage facilities by limited tests and operation based on determination of percentage range of operating life. An algorithm is developed to determine the original and extended service life of a fuel storage facility, including durability and strength studies made of its constituent parts with allowance of the time of safe operation.
