A steel chimney is 28m high, 1.4m external diameter, and 20mm thick. It is rigidly fixed at the base and is acted upon by a horizontal wind pressure of intensity 1.1KN/m2 on the projected area. The steel weighs 74KN/m length. Calculate the maximum stress in the chimney at the base.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 19, 2018, 9:30 pm ad1c9bdddf
I am sending the solution in the attachment. The resulting stress is small when compared to the limits of steel, ...
Solution attaches a visual answer in a .jpg as well as some explanation as to how to find the maximum stress a given chimney can handle at its base.
