Insulation thickness is 50 MM.
How much the surface area of Shell and cone roof.what is the method of calculation.
Moreover,roof slope is 1:6
One more question How do we know top of floating roof of a tank is cone or Dome.
Is there any general way to know ?

Below are the formulas for cone and dome roof areas.
surface area of Cone = π *r*s
surface area of Dome =2*π*r*h
Height of dome h = ( Rr²-r²)^½
r = radius of tank
s = slant height of cone
Rr= Dome radius

Cone roof is specified by angle with horizontal whereas Dome roof is specified by Dome radius.

Hope this helps.
