Abstract
Natural draught cooling towers and concrete chimneys are subject to comparable design requirements with respect to their load capacity due to extreme wind loading and durability due to thermal action and chemical attack. This paper compares the relevant design methods in order to verify the ultimate and serviceability limit states, and identifies both similarities and deviations in the relevant guidelines and design recommendations.
