In the paper, to solve the patchwork problem of large chemical storage tank bottom, theoretical researches on arranging special-shaped parts are carried out. The heuristic layout algorithm with dynamic decision layout order and based on graphics position strategy is proposed. According to the algorithm, basing on Sinovation platform, using the object- oriented programming language C++ and Visual Studio tools, the arranging and patchwork system is designed and developed. And the application researches are performed with the system. The results show that, comparing with the rectangular envelopment algorithm, the plate utilization ratio is increased with the patchwork algorithm as proposed in the paper.

"My experiences in publishing a paper with Bentham Open is good. I must say that the speed of publication in The Open Petroleum Engineering Journal is very fast. It takes only two month for the pioneer reviewing process. The delay was caused by me. And what’s more, the publisher’s office is quite helpful. I guess they are dealing with thousands emails every week, but they process my request in a very short period of time."
