Chimney calculation

Flow Engineering is specialized in chimney calculation and design. We have over 20 years of experience in the calculation, design and installation of chimneys, flares and stacks. For the preliminary design of these slender structures, Flow Engineering is the organization you need.

Our chimney calculation consist of:

  • In-wind load calculation
  • Cross-wind load calculation due to vortex shedding
  • Prevent galloping instabilities
  • Earthquake load calculation
  • Base-plate stress calculation
  • Flange stress calculations
  • Plate stress
  • Maximal foundation loads

After completion of the calculation, the dimensions of the chimney will be suited at which the manufacturer can focus what he does best. His business.

Similar structures are also candidate for this calculation. Like radio mast or wind turbine mast. You may request this possibility by contacting us.

  • Preliminary design of chimneys, stacks, flares
  • Preventing dynamic problems at the design phase
  • Analyzing and solving vibration problems in existing structures

An industrial chimney: calculation, design and installation

Flow Engineering has the needed expertise to execute the calculation, design and installation of an industrial chimney. To do this properly, we need some specific data. We need to know the environmental factors, intended location, diameter at the base and at the top, platforms, access ladders and height. Then we will present a plan of plate thickness, the minimum diameter and dimensions of the base of the plate and the anchor bolts. We can also prevent dynamic problems in the design phase by researching is a Tuned Mass Damper is needed and applicable.

Our activities

We are not only specialized in the calculation and design of an industrial chimney, but also in analyzing and solving vibration problems in existing structure. We manufacture and install Tuned Mass Dampers to reduce or prevent vibrations in slender structures.
