Catastrophic failure of a carbon steel storage tank due to internal corrosion

A paper published in « Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis« , available on sciencedirect.com.

Catastrophic failure of a 10 m high, 8 m diameter steel storage tank containing approximately 350 m3 of waste solvent led to a significant environmental incident in 2009. An investigation was carried out to establish the root cause and to learn lessons that might prevent a reoccurrence.
