Project SOPAC Chimney
To raise the emission of gases from one of SOPAC's emission points in Portugal, it was necessary to build a new chimney. This new fiber chimney required an outer support structure of the same height. Slefty was responsible for the structural study of the chimney support as well as its foundations.
The chimney is 63 meters tall with 3 inspection platforms. It was necessary to perform an analysis of the high winds in the factory area for the analysis of the chimney structure. The chimney’s foundations are of the indirect type.
Slefty has been performing several wind analyses for high structural elements, mainly in an industrial environment.
