7 Three membrane systems. 7 shows a simple introduction of the three systems. GT96 The GT96 is Gaz Transport’s tank design. The GT96 tanks consist of a primary and secondary thin membrane made of the material Invar, which has almost no thermal contraction. Thus, the pressure produced by contraction can be neglected. Invar is a kind of material that is very expensive, but its advantage in weight can make up its weakness. The 4000 ton Moss-type tank has the same volume as the 400 ton GT96. Compared to the barriers, the insulation materials are cheaper and more common.
This skirt allows the tank to expand and contract during cool-down and warm-up operations. During the cool-down or warm-up phase, the tank can expand or contract about 2 ft. Because of this expansion and contraction all piping into the tank comes in via the top and is connected to the ships lines via flexible bellows. Inside each tank there is a set of spray heads. These heads are mounted around the equatorial ring and are used to spray liquid LNG onto the tank walls to reduce the temperature. IHI (Prismatic IMO-Type B LNG Tanks) The self-supporting prismatic type B (SPB) tank was developed by IshikawajimaeHarima Heavy Industries.
Load Condition 2dMaximum Sagging The purpose of the “maximum sagging” load condition is to combine the still water condition, normally a fully loaded condition, and a position of the design wave such that both will result in maximum longitudinal compression stress above the neutral axis of a transverse section. The extreme sagging condition is considered in a head sea situation, but may allow for some fluctuation as in load condition 1. , 180 C) Speed: 0 knots Extreme still water sagging condition.
