- Segmentation hoisting is generally used for flare stack with flange connection structure. This paper presents a technical innovation of integral hoisting of flare stack with flange connection structure. In the paper, CATIA finite-element-analysis is used to build 100% model of flare stack and to simulate working condition in both horizontal and vertical limit states during integral hoisting of flare stack. Strength and stability of flare stack during hoisting is checked and calculated, dangerous points are found, measures of strengthening weak structure are proposed and references are provided for hoisting procedure design and formulation of hoisting plan.
