Transmission Tower Foundations in Weathered Rock
A case history is presented which discusses the siting, design and construction of the tower foundations for a transmission line in southwest Alaska. The project, completed in 1983, consists...

Probabilistic Wind Response of Cooling Tower Using Monte-Carlo Simulation

Intermountain Power Project Seismic Design
Coal-fueled generation units of the Intermountain Power Project are constructed in a seismically active area of Utah (UBC Zone 3). The seismic design criteria were published during the...

Limit State Analysis of Lattice Steel Transmission Towers
The background and present status for limit state analysis of lattice steel towers at the Bonneville Power Administration is presented. Conceptual development, a computer program, and...

Cooling Tower Practice in Germany: State of the Art
A rapid development in design and construction of natural draught cooling towers has taken place in Germany. Research has been concentrated on theory and analysis of shells, on acting...

Method for Analysis for Guyed Towers
A method for static analysis of guyed towers is extended and applied to problems in three dimensions. The tower and guy cables may be loaded by arbitrary distributed or concentrated forces,...

Simplified Earthquake Analysis of Suspension Bridge Towers
Free vibration and earthquake response analyses of a simplified continuous analytical model representing suspension bridge towers (fixed at the base) are presented. In addition, various...

Cooling Tower Shells Founded on Soil
A dynamic axisymmetric finite element model suitable for shells of revolution founded on ring footings is presented. The model consists of high-precision rotational shell finite elements,...

Nonlinear Traveling-Wave Effects on Cooling Tower
The dynamic response of a tall reinforced-concrete hyperbolic cooling tower which has been designed for vertically incident seismic waves, based on a linear analysis, is examined for horizontally...

Meridional Imperfection in Cooling Tower Design: Update
The effect of meridional imperfection in hyperbolic cooling towers is studied in a continuation of an earlier study by the writers; the present paper takes into account the parallel work...

Buckling of Cooling Towers
The main goal of this study is to provide a clearer basis for judging the succeding safety of wind-loaded cantilever hyperboloidal shells. New predictions for cooling tower buckling are...
