I many large capacity power plant facilities, the natural draft cooling tower in the fonn of a thin shell of revolution is often required to di~sipate a large amount of heat. Construction of such large reinforced concrete natural draft cooling towers is expensive and time-consuming. The cost of the structure is strongly influenced by the construction technique. A possible means of reducing this cost is the technique of segmental construction in which the benefits of both precasting and post…
