Large steel stacks and chimneys present unique design challenges to engineers. Given their size, the rules typically used for other structural elements are not necessarily applicable and can potentially result in either uneconomical or unsafe designs. Currently there...read more
Disagreement between various design standards raises questions for engineers as to what represents an appropriate drag force coefficient (Cd). The Cd value is used to determine the design wind load applied to structure. Vertical vessels and exhaust stacks are...read more
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has transformed design procedures for engineers. Allowing more complex geometry, loading and restraint cases to be analysed. FEA is a powerful tool for engineers to simulate problems that would otherwise be too cumbersome for hand...read more
