  • ISSN : 0009-7845



The turbine house structure is subjected to heavy industrial plant loadings. Associated imposed floor loadlngs are not covered in the SABS design codes. This paper describes the structural concept and design loads used. Restraint actions due to temperature variation, shrinkage and settlements are considered. The design was done in 1982/83.

Die turbinehuis word aan swaar industriële belastings onderwerp. Die SABS-ontwerpkodes maak nie hiervoor voorsiening nie. Hierdie verslag handel oor die strukturele konsep- en ontwerpbelastings. Remmingswerkings as gevolg van temperatuurverskille, inkrimping en versakkings word beskou. Die ontwerp is gedurende 1982/83 gedoen.
