Is there any tutorial for design of industrial steel chimney (steel stack), especially for SOFiPLUS, how to choose elements (line and area) and how to apply load on cylindrical area?
I don’t remember any SOFiPLUS(-X) chimney tutorial, but we have a TEDDY example of a coolingtower.
Perhaps this gives you some help.

Or you look at the SOFiMSHA tutorial of a silo.
