The team of David Wilson, Jason Merritt and David Gibson authored a paper titled “Structural Analysis and Design of Replacement Water Columns for Boilers” at the Seventh International Structural Engineering and Construction Conference (ISEC-7) which was held in Honolulu, Hawaii June 18 – 23, 2013.
The paper provided insight related to water column design in accordance with ASME standards and classical structural engineering formulae. Furthermore the paper worked through an example for a new water column design that implemented a Safety Instrumented System (SIS) requiring greater capacity, improved maintenance access, and additional water level transmitters to provide improved boiler safety.
The conference, hosted by the College of Engineering at the Manoa Campus of the University of Hawaii, was attended by David Wilson and Jason Merritt. For additional information on the conference see: Seventh International Structural Engineering and Construction ConferenceRead More
