Serial Information: Journal of the Power Division, 1962, Vol. 88, Issue 3, Pg. 89-96
Document Type: Journal Paper
A successful plant layout is usually the result of carefully evaluated schematic studies showing the interrelationships among all major features. The coal-handling system is a most significant item, often dominating the site layout. The quantity of coal has a direct bearing on the layout of railroad facilities, conveyor systems, and storage areas. Other important factors in the layout are the general topography, foundation conditions, character of the cooling water, direction of outgoing transmission lines, adjacent land use, and direction of prevailing winds.
