Title: Further Tests of Concrete Tanks for Oil Storage
Author(s): George A. Smith
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 22-37
Abstract:In the paper, "Tests of Concrete Tanks for Oil Storage," presented before the Institute in 1919, penetration losses for oils stored in tanks of 1: 2/3: 1-1/3 concrete were given. These tests were made in connection with the war reasearch work for the Emergency Fleet Corportation, and had to do particularly with the type of concrete which was selected for the construction of concrete ships. With the end of the war interest in this problem would have dwindled had not concrete rapidly come to take a leading place in the construction of fuel oil containers, of which there are now some hundreds of installations throughout the country.
