Stack Drawings
This chapter includes schematic drawings of a chimney stack....

Back from the Brink
The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest brick lighthouse in the United States, has been moved to prevent it from toppling into the sea as a result of coastal erosion. Engineers from...

Analysis of R/C Chimneys with Soil-Structure Interaction

Evaluation of Corroded Steel Chimneys
The paper is focused on the analysis of corroded steel chimneys. Cylindrical steel plates are exposed to thermal and chemical effects. The study is based on the results of extensive measurements...

Aesthetic Considerations in the Design of a Stack Extension
The Connecticut D.E.P. mandated increase in height of the boiler stack at Backus Hospital in Norwich, CT presented many problems. Adding a new 45 foot vertical section atop the old brick...

Blast Demolition of Reinforced Concrete Industrial Chimneys
On some of recently demolished chimneys, transient measurements were taken, in the vicinity of the tilting hinge, during the process of falling down. Thus, corresponding dynamic computational...

Failure of the Turkey Point Unit 1 Reinforced Concrete Chimney During Hurricane Andrew

Fission Product Distribution in Nuclear Test Cavities/Chimneys
When a nuclear device is exploded, residual radioactive material is distributed throughout the resulting underground cavity and rubble chimney. Refractory materials are more concentrated...

Structural Renovation of Tall Chimneys
This paper describes several tall chimney projects where major renovations were performed to the linings which required complete structural analysis of the existing chimney and foundation....

On the Failure Probabilities of R/C Chimneys
A procedure to estimate failure probabilities of structural systems such as reinforced concrete (R/C) chimneys under severe wind loading which allows for considering realistic correlation...

Nonlinear Dynamic Response of Industrial R/C Chimneys
Gust response factors (GRF) based on nonlinear dynamic analysis including the PΔ effect are calculated. All sample structures analyzed show clearly that, for wind speeds exceeding the...

Early Age Strength Detection for In-situ Concrete
In recent years it has become increasingly beneficial to know the quality of concrete as soon as possible after it has been placed. This is especially true for high-rise concrete buildings...

Aerodynamic Modeling of Chimneys
The wake induced acrosswind behavior of circular cross-section structures, such as industrial chimney, has been studied for many years using wind tunnel models. Due to the relaxation of...

Wind Forces Measured on a Tall R.C. Chimney
This paper describes some aspects of an analysis performed on measurements of a variety of parameters relating to the wind, wind forces on and the response of a tall chimney. The results...

Hollow Conic Shell Foundation and Calculation

Reliability of Concrete Chimneys under Wind Loading

A Practical Probabilistic Model

Elastic-Plastic Seismic Response of Chimney
An analytic investigation of the elastic and inelastic response behaviors of an 823-ft (251-m) chimney to a realistic earthquake record is conducted. The chimney is modeled by using eight...

Structural Characterization Of Concrete Chimneys

Reservoir Outlet Extended Above Silt to Prevent Clogging
Accumulation of silt in an on-stream water storage reservoir almost completely buried the concrete tower originally provided as an outlet intake shaft for releasing stored water through...
