"Evaluation of the Safety of a Cracked Concrete Cooling Tower";
in: "Proceedings of the IABSE-Colloquium on Structural Concrete",
The limit of serviceability and the residual safety against structural collapse of a cracked concrete cooling tower, which was built 25 years ago, is evaluated numerically by the finite element method. The process of damage is simulated by means of different thermal load histories. Several assumptions concerning the degree of corrosion are made.
