ASCE MOP 136
Concrete Foundations for Turbine Generators Analysis, Design, and Construction
|Publication Date:||1 January 2018|
SCOPE AND LIMITATIONS
The scope of this book is limited to the design of the following concrete TG foundations:
• Block Foundation-pedestals
• Elevated Space-Frame Pedestal Foundation-tabletop and columns supported on a basemat.
• Vibration Isolated Foundation-equipment
This manual of practice does not address steel foundations. This book is organized into eleven chapters with three appendixes.
This book is intended as a state of practice guide for practicing engineers and designers responsible for the analysis and design of gas and steam turbine generator foundations. Recommendations for the design, analysis, construction, and other aspects of TG foundations are provided as deemed adequate by the committee. The responsibility for satisfying the manufacturer's criteria for a particular installation is left to the responsible engineers.
This report is not intended to supersede any manufacturer's criteria.
