Abstract: Current codes and standards do not address many of the structures found in the petrochemical industry. Therefore, many engineers and companies involved in the industry have independently developed procedures and techniques for handling different engineering issues. This lack of standardization in the industry has led to inconsistent structural reliability. These reports, Wind Loads and Anchor Bolt Design in Petrochemical Facilities, are intended as state-of-the-practice set of guidelines in the determination of wind induced forces and the design of anchor bolts for petrochemical facilities, respectively. These reports are aimed at structural design engineers familiar with design of industrial-type structures.
