Steel and concrete structures are present all around an industrial site, and need to be designed for load magnitudes that are often unique to that location. For example, the foundations of rotating equipment need to be designed for a given soil type and to avoid resonance. Whilst pipe racks need to be designed economically to withstand a specified blast load.

This instructor led virtual course teaches participants the calculation methods for sizing reinforced concrete used for the foundations of tanks and towers, and rotating equipment. The sizing and dimensioning of steel constructions such as pipe racks and buildings will be explained, with the focus of how to design them for blast loads. Practical examples form a key component of the course.

The course typically takes place across 5 training days. All sessions will be live sessions with the instructor, and on each topic there will be an extensive workshop where participants will immediately put the skills they have learnt into practice with assistance of the instructor.

This training course is available as a company in-house training only; there is a choice between an online training or an onsite training. All training materials will be available through your EngineeringTrainer account.

After the course you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course material. This allows you to perform modules again when you need to refresh the knowledge for your projects. 

 




Upon Registration Deadline we will contact you to arrange course dates and payment.
