This chapter is about learning to become familiar with the layout and contents of API RP 652: Lining of Above-ground Storage Tanks. Similar to API RP 651, API 652 is a well-established document (recently issued in its 3rd edition: 2005). As a short code, it supplies supplementary technical information suitable mainly for open-book examination questions. Similar to the other short code in the syllabus, it is more a technical guide document than a true code, but it performs a function in supporting the content of API 653. It contains useful technical information on the lining of tank bottoms to minimize the effects of corrosion. API 652 is one of those API documents that, in each revision, seems to grow in technical detail, rather than keeping the scope constant and just making a few paragraph amendments, as many codes do.
