Chimney Design

Chimney DesignCHIMNEY computes the optimal wall thickness and many structural details of slender steel structures with a (tapered) circular cross-section, such as chimneys, masts and advertising pillars.

CHIMNEY can be applied in a design mode or in a design checking mode.

In the design mode the computed (optimal) wall thickness fulfills conditions for stability, buckling and ovalling stress. For across wind vibrations the first three deflection modes are accounted for.

In the design checking mode the wall thickness is user specified and the stresses are computed.
