Title: Tests of Concrete Tanks for Oil Storage
Author(s): J.C. Pearson and G.A. Smith
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 186-203
Abstract:During the past year a series of experiements have been conducted at the Bureau of Standards for the purpose of determining the limitations of concrete for oil storage. These experiments have consisted in the main permeability tests on small concrete tanks containing various types of oils, but consideration has also been given to the possible injurious effects of the oils on the concrete, and to the use of coatings which might be effective in preventing or reducing the penetration of oils into and through the body of the concrete.
