    Design Skirt support

    Hi*
    Can some one help me* to design skirt support (for Vertical Pressure Vessels)

    Here is my parameters
    I have a vessel weight of 150000 daN
    A height from the tangente line of the bottom head : 10 meters
    an Outside Diameters of the skirt and of the vessel : 4 meters

    Here is my Problem / Question
    I have a height* with a weight and diameters* i want to know the minimum thickness of the skirt support*
    and how to design the stiffners for the skirt due to the height.
    I looked on codap* asme* and pressure vessel design manual.

    And if i am not mistaken* codes don't take the height in parameters.

    Please* ask for more information (if needed).

    Thanks for help

    The design of vertical vessel & its skirt is not according to a given weight. Lot of considerations required superimposed loads* internals* liquid* attachments* loads*piping*seismic*wind* lifting* temp. material of your skirt* anchoring etc. these affects your skirt thickness* its time consuming & wish that somebody can help you to run thru software. Overall height is considered on thickness calc. Stiffeners for skirt is not necessary* you need to satisfy the loads without stiffener.

    Regards*
