Abstract: Fossil fueled power-plant projects provide many design and construction challenges for connection of steel to concrete. Heavily loaded anchorages are required to support building structures and hold down machinery and equipment. Column bases for coal fired boiler support structures can transmit loads in the order of 4000 kN of tension and 2000 kN of shear. This magnitude of tension load requires groups of high strength bolts 100mm and larger in diameter. Shear loads are resisted using hot rolled structural shapes or heavy plate (up to 50mm thick) as shear lugs. Power-plant equipment such as turbo-generators, condensers, stacks, fans and pumps require precision placement of anchor bolts and shear lugs, often in the vicinity of congested reinforcing steel and embedded pipe and conduit. Construction consideration for column bases and equipment foundations often have a significant impact on the structural design.
