Title: Wind Vibration of Chimneys
Author(s): Kenneth Irish and Robert G. Cochrane
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 589-596
Keywords: Chimneys, cyclic loads, reinforced concrete,
Reynolds number, stresses, structural design,
Abstract:Concrete chimneys, stiffer, heavier, more highly damped form of construction, free of vibration problems common to steel stacks. However, authors believe that present trends, allowing increasing stresses, combined with more slender structures, may lead to concrete chimney vibration. Paper reviews present state of knowledge regarding chimney vibrations, highlights gaps left in knowledge of vi bration characteristics of full-sized structures.
