RE: Industrial Plant Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Industrial building design is not easily contained in a single book.  Steel
mill buildings, refineries, coal fired power plants, and waste water
treatment plants are industrial structures, but they have few similarities.
Intended performance is the driving criteria.

There are several references that might be helpful.  I have listed a few
examples.  Most major firms practicing industrial design, develop their own
proprietary design guides.

Review the offerings of ASCE for various industrial structures
The AISC publishes Design Guide 7 "Industrial Building Design"
Whiting publishes a crane handbook
The "Handbook of Concrete Engineering" by Fintel

For cement plants I would get on the PCA web site
and call some of them.  They would also be helpful on concrete batch plants.
