Structural Engineering in Modern Gasworks

To those who are not engaged in gas engineering, it is difficult to fully appreciate the wide range of training and experience that is necessary in order to deal satisfactorily with the problems which arise in the design of plant and apparatus for the manufacture of coal gas. The necessary plant and machinery call for knowledge and experience in the design of structures and their foundations which may involve anything from a simple mass of concrete to a complicated arrangement of reinforced rafting or piling-a knowledge of civil, structural, mechanical and chemical engineering, and also a knowledge of the application and limitation of steam and gas engines, electrical apparatus and hydraulic power.
