A. Cylindrical Tank, Fixed-Roof with Rafter & Column (cont.) 8. Calculation for Normal Venting Capacity. 8.1. Design Data. Nominal Tank Diameter, D Height of Tank, H Max. Storage Capacity, V Max. Filling Rate, Vt Max. Emptying Rate, Vo 8.2. Required Normal Venting Capacity. Flash Point Tank Capacity (< 20000 barrels ?) Thermal Venting Capacity, Qt = 0.178 V Required Inbreathing Capacity, Qi = Vo + Qt Required Outbreathing Capacity, Qo = 1.07 Vt + Qt Required Venting Capacity, Qreq. = Max (Qi, Qo) 8.3. Actual Capacity, Qact.
