Design and Modal Analysis of Power Plant Cooling Towers

A. Rakesh


Natural Draught hyperbolic cooling towers are the characterizing land marks of power station. They contribute both to an efficient energy output & to a careful balance with our environment. These structures are most efficient measures for cooling thermal power plants by minimizing the need of water & avoiding thermal pollution of water bodies. This paper deals with the study of static and dynamic (model) analysis of hyperbolic cooling towers (i.e. self weight, static loads). The boundary conditions considered are Top end free and Bottom end fixed. The material used for cooling tower is concrete. Three different cooling towers will modeled by using SOLIDWORKS 2016 software i.e:CT1, CT2. Static and model analysis Analysis will perform by using ANSYS 16.0 work bench software on self load condition due to gravity , stresses and deformation will find out on cooling tower due to load as static analysis , and frequencies on different deformation mode shapes will find out as model analysis.
