RE: Steel Stack Design

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



Thanks.  Is this an area of structural design that basically requires a special software program?  Or is it conceivable that I could design one by hand? Looking at the Lincoln Arc Welding book, it looks like it was pretty complex before (especially with breeches), but not to the point where you absolutely NEED a special computer program, but then I don’t have ASME’s publication yet.

        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.

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?
