Brian,
 
        Two good references are
1.  ASME STS-1-2000, Steel Stacks (There may be a newer addition).
2.  Tubular Steel Structures, James F. Lincoln Arch Welding Foundation.

Subject: Steel Stack Design

What are some good design guides for steel stack design?  I'm looking at designing a 3' diameter, 72' tall, freestanding, cantilevered stack.  I've heard SMACNA is a good place to start, but what is the beat-all, end-all word in stack design?
