Finite element method (FEM) is a numerical technique for solving Engineering problem and Mathematical Physics. Useful problems with complicated geometries, Loading, and material properties where analytical solutions may not be obtained. Some of the complicated problems involving load is a cylindrical Reservoir structures where crude oil is stored in a Tank Farm. This paper demonstrates the use of Finite Element Analysis in above surface cylindrical Reservoir Engineering Structure. The reservoir

This paper is the second phase of our pilot model and we hope to developed this second phase further to cover nine studs. The studs covered ranges from northern part of the Reservoir to the southern parts to further test the application of FEM triangular shaded (Truss) elements.
