Brittle fracture is the tensile failure of a material showing little deformation or yielding. Brittle fractures typically start at a flaw and can propagate at speeds of up to 7000 feet per second (fps), resulting in catastrophic failures such as the Ashland Oil Company incident in 1988. Almost all major tank design codes have been revised to reflect the current understanding of brittle fracture. 4 Corrosion Corrosive effects in tanks may be divided into internal and external ones. External corrosion is usually minimized by the use of coatings for carbon steel tanks.
