The Aerodynamic Behaviour of the Framed Multiflue Chimney Stack of Edinburgh Royal Infirmary

Steel chimneys have been known to be subject to wind-induced oscillation. As a design procedure, an investigation was carried out on the aerodynamic oscillatory behaviour of the proposed Edinburgh Royal Infirmary boilerhouse stack through wind tunnel tests on models fitted with various types of aerodynamic damping device. When the new stack was erected, with the incorporation of a damping device consisting of a system of longitudinal slats, instrumental observation on the behaviour of the complete structure in wind was also carried out in situ.
