RE: tall cylindrical pressure vessels

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Tall towers (pressure vessels) are covered by "Pressure vessel handbook",
Megysesy (http:/

Additional information on wind vibration can be found in Steel plate
engineering data" (

Wind loads in the above publications may not suit your local building code.
Be sure to check the buckling values due to vessel wt + vacuum + wind
overturning and compare to ASME Code allowables for D/t of vessel.

Hi sport fans and structural experts:

Does anyone have  the source for the current state of the art structural
design, software or publications, for tall steel cylindrical pressure
in high wind (hurricane force) areas? The operating pressure is 30 psi +/-,
the max. height 60' and the diameter 12'-16'.

The proposed project is in Florida.

Thanks in advance.
