Vertical cylindrical steeltanks for the storage of liquids use different types of foundations. In such tanks, sometimes ground-layered foundations are used, and much more often, ring-shaped reinforced concrete foundations with compacted gravel-sand substrate inside these rings. During long-term operation of the tanks, the soil under the steel bottom of the tank undergoes permanent deformations in the form of vertical non-uniform settlement. This settlement can have different causes, but in each case, affects the state of stress and deformation
A cylindrical steeltank for liquid with a vertical axis and with the following parameters, V = 1,200 m 3 , H = 20 m, m = 38.85 t, was mounted. The shell of the tank consisted of 10 shell courses (segments) with respective thicknesses of 5 mm– courses from 1 to 4, 6 mm (courses 5–6), 7 mm (courses 7–8) and 8 mm (courses 9–10). During the assembly of each segment, the shell of the tank was stiffened on fragments of its lower edge using bowed (cambered) channels about 3.0-m long, to which connectors were welded. To mount the tank, four
hull structural steeltanks protected by means of coating systems combined of polyurethane layer and concrete filler (Laboratory test method) (in Polish).

The subject of the article is the verification of the reliability of thin-walled rotationally symmetric cylindrical shells, using probabilistic approaches. Internal forces and stress of the shell are analysed assuming a membrane action. Material and geometric characteristics of the steel shell are considered as random variables. The reliability index is evaluated using the Latin Hypercube Sampling method. The results of the reliability analysis are derived in a general form, so that they may be useful for assessing the reliability of tanks and pipes.
