Concrete Structural Design for Industrial Sector



This training program offers specialized instruction tailored for professionals involved in designing concrete structures for industrial applications. It will allow engineers to be familiar with using American Concrete Institute Standard (ACI) and British standard (BS).

Program Objectives:

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Explore the modern and effective procedures for the design of reinforced concrete structures in the Oil & Gas industry.

  • Gain knowledge on calculation for reinforced concrete elements used in the Oil & Gas industry.

  • Increase the knowledge and assist in using new tools for designing and reviewing the design for a new project or modify the existing one.

  • Gain knowledge on the design of foundation under all types of vibrating equipment, and the blast design of buildings.

  • Illustrate the real design issues that may assist the designer in providing the concrete structure that is safe, economical, and constructible.

  • Understand the rule of thumb to check the concrete design with an associated checklist.

Targeted Audience:

  • Civil Engineer.

  • Structural Engineer.
