Climate change introduces the need to look at new issues in the safe operation of engineering structures, [1, 2]. Analysis for the past decade has shown the significance of the weather changes taking place and the effects in the form of periodic long heat waves causing heating of external surfaces combined with solar radiation can cause significant structural impacts. Intense rainfall causing increased penetration of water into the ground also proves to be an important issue in terms of the proper condition of foundation zones. Performed studies have shown that in unfavorable conditions can lead to defects in the foundation zones of steel tanks.
