Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 43)


The case of heat and mass transfer is investigated for static storage of liquefied gases, which, with exception of the near-wall region, occurs without temperature stratification of the liquid phase. The maintenance of vessels in a regime of uniform heating reduces losses by a factor of 2.5 – 3.5. The range of parameters for the process corresponding to this regime under self-pressurization are investigated.
