|Abstract||Vertical vessels are massive structures used in oil industries which store oil and different fluids. Due to the massiveness of the structure and pedestal considerations, an octagonal foundation is designed in place of a simple rectangular footing. The design includes analyzing of loads from superstructure, design of base plate and foundation bolt, design of pedestal and footing. The design of pile is not considered in the present study. The main objective of the study is to evaluate the manual method of design procedure. The same footing is modeled in different commercial finite element software. Performance of the designed foundation as obtained from the finite element analysis is then compared with that obtained from manual calculations. Maximum moment obtained from the software for the given support forces are found to be higher than those calculated manually according to Process Industry Practices guideline. Therefore, the design process outlined in PIP underestimates the bending moment demand as per the present study. However the present study is based on one typical case study. There is a provision for repeating this study taking into consideration a large number of foundations with varying parameters to arrive at a more comprehensive conclusion.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
