The author describes the several concepts around which the existing marine LNG containment designs are formulated. The Kvaerner-Moss spherical containment system without secondary barrier is discussed in some detail. The design analysis of that system is presented in a step-by-step fashion as actually performed, along with descriptions of tank materials research and structural experiments which supplement the analytical work. The fabrication sequence of the spheres is discussed, and the welding procedures used for both aluminum and 9 percent nickel steel are included.
