Abstract:

The paper considers wind loadings on cooling towers from both a static and dynamic point of view. Field measurements of wind pressure on full-scale towers provide the main basis for study, and the paper includes a review of how measurements were taken, an interpretation of field data for quasi-static designs, and one suggested procedure for applying field data to a more complete dynamic analysis of the tower response in gusting wind.
