 Summary:
 The main topic of the paper is dimensioning steel liquide storage tank, rectangular in shape, with three compartments. Depending on the investor’s request (dimensions required for the tank and maximum use of space) a need arose for structure with atypical shape. Austenitic stainless steel is used in this example what is recommended for use in aggresive environments. Dimensioning of steel plates, stiffened and unstiffened, according to Eurocode is carried out according to EN 1993-1-7, which refers to plates loaded out of their plane. Within the first part of the analysis dimensioning is performed according to Eurocode 3. The second part of the paper represents comparative analysis of results obtained according to Eurocode and results obtained using previous domestic standard SRPS.MZ.3. 054. (1981).
