hello all,

I'm new here but i have been reading posts from this forum, quite interesting stuff.

I'm in the design process of a large gasoline tank (25 meters dia x 18 meters ht), consisting of an internal floating roof and a fixed roof.

the client didn't give me any clue of what the design pressure/vacuum might be,

As a rule of thumb what might be the design pressure/vacuum be for this tank?

any advice would help.

In your question header you state it is an API 650 tank so you can go to the link below and read a previous edition of API 650 to better familiarize yourself. Saying it's an API 650 tank basically is short hand for a certain type of tank.
