The Encasing Structure for the Hot Water Accumulator for the Pimlico District Heating Scheme

This paper describes the design and erection of a 16-sided glazed steel tower 36 feet diameter and 140 feet high, which encloses a hot water accumulator. The tower is of welded construction and was pre-fabricated in large sections. Wind stresses were given special attention in the design. Guthlac Wilson
