    This is a discussion of the facets of cryogenic storage tank design directed toward those who have only limited experience in the field. Design considerations as to cost, suitability of materials for the temperatures and pressures involved, configuration of inner vessels and jackets, support systems, and types of insulation, evacuated and nonevacuated, for both shop-built and fielderected vessels are discussed in brief. The potential requirements for cryogenic storage for industrial applications are listed. Military applications for both ground and air-borne use are excluded as these involve unusual design conditions foreign to the usual industrial installation.
