Behrent Engineering was contracted to provide engineering and design services associated with a two story steel frame building to house the electrical equipment for a capture subsystem at a power plant located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The building was a steel framed building on a concrete foundation. It was important to protect the structure from the hydrogen tanks nearby.
Behrent Engineering provided the following engineering and design services for this project:
- Developed design criteria for structural steel and concrete foundations
- Developed structural model for building
- Designed & detailed foundations
- Designed & detailed building steel framing system
- Designed CMU wall
- Developed buildup roof requirements and details
- Developed cable tray supports & bus duct supports
- Designed structural steel needed to support the HVAC unit
- Developed AutoCAD model for pipe racks
- Designed pipe racks, duct racks and cable trays on exterior of building
- Prepared drawing details for FRP ductwork.
- Designed additional structural steel supports and foundations for the absorber inlet and outlet ductwork.
- Designed new steel platform and stairs for access to FRP duct access doors on the absorber inlet duct.
- Designed new steel supports for absorber recirculation pipes, inline filters and access platform to in-line filters.
- Analyzed ductwork corrosion allowance downstream of I.D. Fan.
- Analyzed existing by-pass ductwork for boiler implosion forces.
