Understanding The Dynamic Of Riser Design In Skyscrapers
WHITE PAPER: The modern skyscraper has been around for over a century. Like other elements of our built environment, the skyscraper can only exist because of other innovations in building technology, namely steel frame construction and safe elevators. Even though we have figured out how to build strong, tall structures and safely move the people inside, there are still the challenges of heating and cooling the building, moving fresh water in and dirty water out, providing fire protection and electricity. Defying gravity adds another twist to the challenges of providing services within tall buildings. This article will introduce some basics of pipe riser design and performance, explain some considerations in using different expansion joints in pipe risers, and briefly describe some of the codes and standards regarding guiding and supporting risers.
The Metraflex Riser Package is another example of Metraflex’s long tradition of developing products to solve real world problems.
The centerpiece of the Metraflex Riser Package is the groundbreaking engineering found in the “Understanding The Dynamic Of Riser Design In Skyscrapers”. The package is rounded out with the Quiet Compensators and the Quiet guide. We also have the no weld, space-saving Riser Anchor Clamp and the Modular Riser Guide. All of these products were developed by Metraflex to solve customer problems.
