Heat from the sun and from the hot truck tailpipe caused the tank to become liquid full. Then, the pressure exceeded 6.9 MPa (1000 psi), causing the tank to explode. The fracture mechanics analysis thus showed that the explosion was not due only to the existing crack, but also to the stopped-up relief valve and excessive liquid propane in the tank.
