PTW tank damage status.
State the level of denting sustained to the PTW tank due to the accident.
(OECD RS9/TEG/ 151 definition)
Tank deformation is measured relative to the initial volume of the tank that has been compromised as a result of the accident.
The following guidelines shall be used to determine the appropriate tank deformation responses.
- No tank deformation evident
- Mild denting
- The tank volume has been reduced to less than 100% but greater than 90% of its original volume
Figure 1: Example of mild tank denting.
- Moderate denting
- The tank volume has been reduced to less than 90% but greater than 60% of its original volume.
- Severe denting
- The tank volume has been reduced to less than 60% of its original volume.
