Industrial steel chimney (steel stack)

Hello, everyone.
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.
