Flexible tank stress analysis

  1. Aug 7, 2010 #1

    I am looking for a method to analyze stress within a flexible fuel tank, akin to the one in the picture:


    So far I have not been able to find a text that would discuss something similar. Simple hydrostatics do not apply if the tank is filled to a point where there is pressure head at the top of the tank.
    I would also like to be able to derive the cross section geometry of the tank, but that is not necessary.

    I would very much appreciate any pointers to any useful reading material.
