Abstract

A comprehensive dynamic testing program has been undertaken to establish the dynamic characteristics of existing fan foundations in order to evaluate their suitability to support new variable speed fans. The dynamic testing program encompassed two sets of tests: pull tests and steady-state vibration test. In addition, dynamic soil-structure interaction analyses were performed to evaluate the response of the foundation to the dynamic operating loads of the new fans.
