This paper concerns the study of the design and realization of a storage tank for raw palm oil. The main objective is to solve the problems of supply shortages of raw palm oil to stock-out to small and Medium Size Enterprises in Cameroon. We first of all look at the state-of-the-art of the design and realization of storage tanks, and then, and in the case of raw palm oil storage, we design an open cylindrical vertical tank with a conical roof supported by a ramework. We then proceed with the sizing of all the structural elements based on specially chosen mechanical criteria. We put in place software, DimCuve, to be used for the automatic sizing of storage tanks. The interest of this work is conclusive for enterprises of this sector.
