Comparative structural analysis of RCC cooling tower for different height and seismic zones
Author(s): Hitesh Sanjay Gandhi and Dr. Ganesh P Deshmukh
Abstract: A cooling tower is a heat rejection device that removes the heat from the water stream into the atmosphere and cools the water to a lower temperature. It is difficult to design and analyze the structure of forces, because it is the structure of the shell. Earthquake and wind loads are two important parameters to consider that make things more complex. Modeling of the building involves modeling and assembly of various supporting elements. The model should ideally represent mass distribution, strength, rigidity and deformity. The first part of this chapter summarizes the various parameters, such as material properties, the basic geometry required to determine the model. The optimal model is observed as a model - 4 according to the results obtained in terms of displacement, voltage. As the height of the cooling tower increases, the results increase.
