Title: Design of Reinforced-Concrete Chimneys
Author(s): J.G. Mingle
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 278-289
Abstract:Independent chimney structures were first used in several European countries about the last of the nineteenth century. The early chimneys were built of common brick laid in mortar. Chimney theory at that time was very meagre and all of the structures were designed by rule of thumb methods, little attention being paid to an economical design or to any archeitectural beauty. Most of these chimneys were of comparatively low height, usually not over 100 ft.. And were built square in section. They were liberally designed and exceptionally well built as is attested to by the fact that several of these structures are still standing and appear as good as new.
