Design and safety of natural gas tanks Due to its high use in cars, it is of great importance. Therefore, in this paper, the empirical, numerical and optimization of these reservoirs is investigated. Experimental section designed and manufactured two metal and composite tanks that have been tested for internal pressure and their strength has been determined. Modeling of these tanks has been done in the numerical section with the help of Abaqus software 6.14. In addition to validating the results with experimental data, numerical simulation has been developed. Using the results of the development of numerical simulation and experimental design software, optimization of parameters and their relationship with pressure tolerance in these tanks have been investigated. The numerical and experimental results are in good agreement. Lightweight composite tanks are more resistant to internal pressures, which resulted in a 30% reduction in the weight of composite tanks and a 20% reduction in deformation under operating pressure.
