From the Back Cover:

To bring ASTs up to standards, rely on the only book that brings you up to speed on how to do it Aboveground storage tanks (ASTs), designed to hold fluids or liquids used by the chemical process industry, gained notoriety following a series of leaks and spills in the 1980s, which had disastrous consequences for the environment. Since that time, new industry regulations on the federal, state, and local levels requiring compliance with new standards, such as the American Petroleum Institute's API 653, have made it all-important for owners and regulators to understand the design, operation, and maintenance of ASTs--and to meet these stringent requirements. That where Aboveground Storage Tanks comes in. The one reference devoted exclusively to ASTs, this book assembles the most critical information on the subject in a single convenient volume. The result is an ideal tool for chemical, environmental, and civil engineers, as well as management and government personnel and others concerned with the regulatory issues governing ASTs. Section by section, this complete reference thoroughly examines and clarifies: Various types of storage media and their applications; Fundamental environmental engineering concerns; Industrial codes and standards for ASTs; AST design considerations; The proper construction, fabrication, and erection of tanks; The often-confusing requirements designed to keep ASTs environmentally sound. At last, here's a timely, in-depth handbook on ASTs and the new standards for their maintenance and inspection--one that makes meeting these madates a less forbidding task. . .and ultimately helps to render our environment a little more secure.

About the Author:
