Eurocode 3. Design of steel structures. Towers, masts and chimneys. Chimneys

Status : Current   Published : May 2008



BS EN 1993-3-2 applies to the structural design of vertical steel chimneys of circular or conical section. It covers chimneys that are cantilevered, supported at intermediate levels or guyed.  The provisions in BS EN 1993-3-2 supplement those given in BS EN 1993-1-1.

BS EN 1993-3-2 is concerned only with the requirement for resistance (strength, stability and fatigue) of steel chimneys.

The following subjects are dealt with in EN 1993-3-2:
Section 1: General
Section 2: Basis of design
Section 3: Materials
Section 4: Durability
Section 5: Structural analysis
Section 6: Ultimate limit states
Section 7: Serviceability limit states
Section 8: Design assisted by testing
Section 9: Fatigue
