Concrete Structural Design for Industrial



Reinforced concrete structures are widely used in the industrial sector special in the oil and gas field for onshore.

Therefore, the basis of design for concrete structure for strength, serviceability, and robustness will be discussed in the scope of code concept. So ACI, BS, UBC, and ASCE will be discussed in the scope of practical wise to use the suitable design method to serve our business safety and operability.

The objective of this course is to train engineers to be familiar with using American Concrete Institute Standard (ACI) and British standard (BS). The concept and basics of codes and standards will be introduced concerning the probability of failure specifically in ACI and BS.

The course will cover the basics of design for retaining wall, liquid tanks, a foundation under machines, and a foundation under steel tanks, separator, KOD. Moreover, the key steps in design and review design will be illustrated

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course the 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
