Load factor for Cooling Tower

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

Dear fellow engineers,

I am designing a cooling tower. I have some doubt regarding the load factors to be used.

For  fluid load (F), ACI 350-01 says U=1.4D+1.7F. But ASCE-02, says 1.4(D+F). Which load combination to used for cooling tower basin design?.

Ignorance is regretted.

Thanks in advance,
