Generator Board Cyclonic Tie Down design

The Scope

Price Trandos required their generator switch board enclosure to be verified for cyclonic wind loading conditions – 2000 year Abnormal Limit State.

The Outcome

Cube performed wind loading calculations for the canopy structure for local wind speeds of up to 90m/s. Specific recommendations were made for the anchor bolts required to withstand the uplift and sliding due to loading. A post fabrication site survey of the canopy structure was conducted and the skid was checked for overturning moment. A marked drawing and a cyclone rating certification letter were issued following the site inspection.
