Q:- What is the appropriate ratio of tank diameter to tank height to avoid anchorage?

Answer: The determination of anchorage requirements is adequately covered in API 650.  Many factors are included in determining if anchors are required and the number of anchors.  This is a specific design condition and should be considered in completing the detailed design of a tank.
