Direct Explicit Formulation for Approach to Wet Bulb
The Merkel equation is solved using numerical techniques. The input parameters are adjusted to render solutions over the normal range of operating conditions. The analytical results based...

Stability of Guyed Towers
Curves and equations are presented for obtaining the critical load of guyed towers. Towers with three or four cables and whose mast is either fixed or hinged at the base are considered....

Stressing of Transmission Tower Peak by Lighting
A lightning stroke on the peak of a transmission line tower causes a current to flow to the ground through the peak members if the overhead ground wire is not connected directly to the...

Optimizing Cooling Policy for System Power Plant
A dynamic programminng model has been developed for minimizing the cooling costs of a series of power plants along a tributary discharging into an estuary. Heat production and dissipation...

Free Torsional Vibrations of Suspension Bridges
A generalized theory of free torsional vibration for a wide class of suspension bridges with double lateral systems is developed, taking into account warping of the bridge deck cross section...

Meridional Imperfection in Cooling Tower
A detailed study of the effect of axisymmetric meridional imperfection in hyperbolic cooling towers is presented. The imperfection is represented by two conical frustrums connected at...

Cable Spring Constants for Guyed Tower Analysis
In current procedures for the structural analysis of guyed towers the effects of the guys on the tower displacements are estimated by determining the guy force on the tower with the tower...

Persistence of Chlorine in Cooling Water from Electric Generating Station
A study of the persistence of chlorine in the cooling water discharged to the Delaware River estuary by the Philadelphia Electric Company Eddystone Generating Station showed that potentially...

Cooling Impoundments: Classification and Analysis
Cooling impoundments can have different degrees of internal temperature stratification and of internal flow circulations. Classification criteria are presented that predict the existence...

Meridionally Imperfect Cooling Towers
With the recent collapse of a cooling tower in Scotland having been attributed to the presence of imperfections in the positioning of the shell surface, the influences on the linear elastic...

Buckling of Stiffened Hyperboloidal Cooling Towers
With increasing dimensions of the cooling towers built of reinforced concrete, the buckling behavior becomes crucial in the proportioning of the shell. Ring stiffeners prove to be most...

Heat Recirculation Induced by Thermal Diffusers
A unidirectional multiport thermal diffuser discharges large quantities of condenser cooling water in the form of a line of turbulent heated jets near the bottom of the receiving waterbody....
