oa Civil Engineer in South Africa - Thermal and fatigue analyses of the flare boom for the FA platform

Volume 33, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0009-7845



With the trend in recent years towards unpropped cantilevered flare booms with high natural frequencies, it has become increasingly important to investigate the effect of short duration gust-induced vibrations on the fatigue life of the structure. In addition, the slender individual members are prone to vortex shedding and a trend towards smaller heat shields necessitates careful investigation of thermal effects on the structure.
