    Hi,
    I am looking for design guidelines for elevated temperature storage tank foundations. As per API 650, storage tanks operating at temperature >93 degree Celsius to be considered as elevated temperature tanks and foundation design shall incorporate effect of this high temperature. In Refineries/Oil & Gas Industry, there are storage tanks like liquid Sulphur, Asphalt, Heat oil etc. which will be operated at temperature > 150 to 200 degree Celsius.  Process Industry Practice (PIP)  standards STE 03020 provides guidelines for storage tank foundations. However, it provides minimum guidelines for elevated temperature tanks. I am looking for standard Industry practice  references which provides guidelines on General Arrangement of foundations & Detail Design procedures for these foundations
