COADE, Inc. a comprehensive engineering software program for PC-compatible computers that designs and analyzes oil storage tanks according to the latest API-650 and API-653 codes. For much less than it would cost to build an in-house spreadsheet application, the software delivers the features and stability typical of a COADE software product, including immediate, top-rate technical support. A menu driven scroll and select interface provides logical options when and where expected. Context sensitivity help provides instant technical assistance for each data field, with code references as often as possible.

The software also provides control options for everything from calculations to screen colors, allowing the customization of the software environment on a directory basis. Options affecting computations include 1988, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996 material data bases, corroded nozzles, corroded hydrotest, corroded wind girder calculations, and wind pressures. A material data base editor is provided so the software can address additional materials not included in the code.

The program also provides several standard units files, which, if not sufficient, can be used to generate other, custom units files. Completed jobs can be converted to other units systems as client requirements dictate, without rerunning the analysis. The company engineering staff continuously maintains the program. Revisions incorporate additional capabilities addressing both technical and operational items. Users are encouraged to suggest improvements that help their day to day usage of the software. The latest version includes the latest addendum to the ninth edition of API-650 as well as the latest addendum to the second edition of API-653.
