• Application study •
Natural draft cooling tower is a high-rise thin
shell structure. The displacement in the top of the cooling tower can be
tens of centimeters under wind loads, several times of the wall
thickness. Cooling tower is very sensitive to wind loads, especially in
multi-towers conditions, where the wind velocity, wind pressure distribution and
airflow among towers are quite complex. On the basis of the experiment
results on irregular multi-towers, this paper put forward some proposals
wind loads of natural draft cooling tower in multi- towers conditions.
