Extremely Highly Loaded

Boiler Supporting Structure
and Boiler Roof in India
The boiler supporting structure
contains the combustion chamber
and is used as the main stiffening
element of the coal-fired plant in
Neyveli, Tamil Nadu, India.
The boiler supporting structure
measures l x w x h = 30.5 m x 30.5
m x 124.0 m and has to, together
with the boiler roof arranged
above, withstand loads of about
46,000 t.
The Dlubal customer Voss & Kamb
was in charge of the structural
analysis and the connections.
