Classification category, = II
Exposure category, = C
Shape factor, Cf = 0.8
Gust factor, Gh = 0.85

Vessel outer diameter, D = 4.536 m


Insulation thickness, t = 0.05 m
Coefficient, Kd = 1.2
Effective diameter, De {=max of [(D + 2t)*Kd] , [(D + 2t) + 0.6]} = 5.563 m
(as per Job Specific Requirements-attachment # 3)

Length of vessel, L = 21.100 m


Effective length of vessel, Le (=L + 2t) = 21.200 m

Height from base to vessel center line, B = 2.7 m


Distance between saddle, Ls = 11.05 m
