Kindly refer API650 Clause 7.5.2 Plumbness
a. The maximum out-of-plumbness of the top of the shell relative to the bottom of the shell shall not exceed 1/200 of the total
tank height.
The out-of-plumbness in one shell course shall not exceed the permissible variations for flatness and waviness as
specified in ASTM A 6M/A 6, ASTM A 20M/A 20, or ASTM A 480M/A 480, whichever is applicable.
