Prepared by the Task Committee on Wind-Induced Forces and Task Committee on Anchor Bolt Design of the Petrochemical Committee of the Energy Division of ASCE.
This report presents state-of-the-practice set of guidelines for the determination of wind-induced forces and the design of anchor bolts for petrochemical facilities. Current codes and standards do not address many of the structures found in the petrochemical industry. As a result, engineers and petrochemical companies have independently developed procedures and techniques for handling engineering issues such as the two contained in this report. A lack of standardization in the industry has led to inconsistent structural reliability, however.
This volume is intended for structural design engineers familiar with design of industrial-type structures.
