Huirong is a structural consultant with over 30 years of experience in the design of nuclear thermal/nuclear power plant structures, transmission and substation structures, mining, smelting and industrial structures. Huirong has extensive knowledge and experience in finite element analysis, structural dynamics, and seismic analysis/design for both nuclear and non-nuclear structures, systems, and components.

Vibratory equipment supported by steel structures require proper design to avoid resonance. Neglecting resonance can result in excessive vibratory response in a structure causing premature equipment failure, fatigue failure of steel members, and lost time for the client. This presentation focuses on a case study where 12 vibratory screens working within a close frequency range resulted in excessive vibrations in the steel structure of a refinery plant. Upon completing a thorough vibration measurement and structural dynamic assessment, a cost-effective solution was devised to isolate the vibration sources by implementing structural steel framing modifications to reduce the vibration across the plant.
