- To investigate the vibration characteristics of the building, when subjected to condenser dynamic loads, by carrying out a time history analysis in FEM software.
- To design and implement a repair technique and study its impact based on the results of the FEM model.
Existing mechanical vendor information was analyzed and compared to actual installation in the field to ascertain the dynamic loads being imparted on the building.
A structural analysis was completed of the entire building to allow tuning of the building’s dynamic response and determine the required stiffening.
A construction work package was prepared with the necessary building structural steel modifications, including design of member connections.
Field engineering support was provided during construction, including completion walkdown and as-building.
