This Indian Standard Standards, after the ( Part 1 ) ( Second Revision ) was adopted by the Bureau of Indian draft finalized by the Special Structures Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council. This standard was first published in 1968 as IS 4998 and subsequently revised in 1975 to cover the requirements of the structural design as well as assessment of loads for reinforced concrete chimneys. In this standard ( Part 1 ) assessment of loads on reinforced concrete chimneys has been covered. Part 2 of this standard will cover design criteria of reinforced concrete chimneys. The recommendations of these standards apply only to chimneys of circular cross-section. Chimneys of non-circular cross-section may experience higher direct wind loads and more complex dynamic effects such as galloping. In such cases, specialist advice shall be obtained for estimating wind loads. Design for dynamic effects of wind and seismic forces requires detailed investigation. When several chimneys are located close to each other, or when the chimney/chimneys are located close to other structures of comparable height, model tests in wind tunnels shall be carried out to assess the buffeting problems that may arise. The design provisions relating to seismic forces are covered in IS 1893 : 1984 ‘Criteria for earthquake resistant design of structures (fourth revision )‘. In the formulation of this standard the following publications have been consulted : AC 307-88 Standard practice for the design and construction of cast-in-place reinforced concrete chimneys.
