Contractors, designers, and engineers will find this guide a very valuable resource, as tables containing hundreds of stacks are detailed and ready to go. This new publication updates the 1996 Guide for Steel Stack Construction, second edition, incorporating text and tables.
New to the 2011 publication are:
- design considerations for free standing stacks under resonant vibration,
- established limits on stacks fitted with testing platforms,
- larger stack selection diameters, and
- consideration of custom designed anchoring systems instead of a standardized schedule.
Includes tables for selection of free standing stacks from 20 feet to 120 feet high, and diameters to 120 inches, companion flange, stiffener sizes and stacks with access ladders and platforms.
