Article

This article describes theoretical approaches to optimizing the geometric dimensions of flexible tanks for oil products with allowance for the total length of the welds on the top and bottom surfaces of the tanks. An algorithm, mathematical models, and an optimization criterion are proposed, making it possible to significantly (by up to 20%) improve the efficiency with which the structural material is laid out and cut. Formulas are given for determining the optimal height, length, and width of the flexible tanks.
