Study on Damage Performance of Oil Storage Tank in the Basis of Modal Test and FEA


Article Preview

In order to learn about the dynamic characteristics of the oil storage tank, detect and identify the damaged oil storage tank, based on the basic principle of the experimental modal analysis, the modal test was maken on the vertical dome roof steel oil storage tank model with the hammer method of multi-point input and output on single point, and the identification ability of the modal parameter was studied when the oil storage tank model is damaged. At the same time, we carried out the model's simulation calculation with FEA, considering the effects of the structural physical parameters and the foundation parameters of the oil storage tank. The calculated results of modal test are in accordance with test values, the analysis results provides certain basis for the damage identification and health monitoring work of the oil storage tank structure.
