Seismic response of liquid storage tank floating roofs involve phenomena that require dynamic nonlinear geometric and material behavior as well as surface to surface contact. Good engineering practice requires a practical analytical approach that captures the essential ingredients of structural behavior under earthquake excitation by making reasonable, conservative, and manageable approximations to the actual conditions. This paper discusses an approach used in Abaqus to calculate the stresses and deformations of a liquid storage tank floating roof under seismic loading. It represents a novel application of contact theory to achieve a solution to this problem. The method is validated by a fully coupled fluid-structure interaction (FSI) finite element analysis using actual earthquake ground accelerations. The method is supported by both the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the Petroleum Association of Japan (PAJ).
