Abstract

This chapter provides an understanding of the mechanical and structural components required for the heat recovery steam generator (HRSG). The HRSG is composed of a significant number of integrated mechanical components contained within a structural supporting system. All of the components must consider temperature and pressure influences, with the main structural supporting system being capable of resisting external forces from wind and seismic actions. The design of the components must first establish the appropriate design parameters; the specific designs must follow designated codes of design. The sections in this chapter will summarize the applicable ...
