Foundation Engineering – STAAD Foundation Designs 10 Substructure Types

There are several civil engineering applications in the market today which optimize design. STAAD has been one of the most complex and highly specialized of them all. Thus engineers often tow the path of least resistance with their selection. STAAD Foundation with copyright of 2013 is a recent application and till date, some think it… Read More Foundation Engineering – STAAD Foundation Designs 10 Substructure Types

Civil Engineering – 4 Major Techniques and Areas for Soil Stabilisation

The foundation is the most important part of any structure, but more important is the seat of that foundation.  Having a concrete foundation which can resist the load from the structure is good; however, if the stratum upon which the foundation lies fails, the strength of the concrete system will be irrelevant. Soil stabilization is… Read More Civil Engineering – 4 Major Techniques and Areas for Soil Stabilisation

Onshore Structural Design – Computer Aided Design of Above Ground Steel Storage Tank

Storage Tanks One of the most prevalent structures in industrial facilities are storage tanks. These could be underground or above ground tanks made from concrete, steel and other suitable material. Literature for the design of concrete storage tanks is widely available. For the purpose of these discussions, above ground steel tanks alone shall be the… Read More Onshore Structural Design – Computer Aided Design of Above Ground Steel Storage Tank

Onshore Structural Design – Computer Aided Design of Vertical Vessel Support

How Vertical Vessels Are Vertical vessels are structures which contain and usually process fluids and span more in the vertical direction. Many will be familiar with the fractionating column used in refineries, but this is only one of the many shapes of vertical vessels. During the design of connection bolts and foundation, the wind load… Read More Onshore Structural Design – Computer Aided Design of Vertical Vessel Support

Onshore Structural Design – Computer Aided Design of Horizontal Vessel Support

What Horizontal Vessels Are Horizontal vessels are structures which contain and usually process fluids and span more in the horizontal direction. This class of vessels can be further characterized into two broad categories; horizontal vessels and heat exchangers. Heat exchangers are different from horizontal vessels in general by the dynamic manner with which they operate.… Read More Onshore Structural Design – Computer Aided Design of Horizontal Vessel Support

Civil Engineering Design for Broad Implementation – Applying Emerging Best Practices

The Trainery in conjunction with SUNYOM and Catchment of Resources presents a 5 day workshop titled “Civil Engineering Design for Broad Implementation – Applying Emerging Best Practices”… High points of the training include: project management, onshore structural design, structural analysis and hands-on use of computer applications. Date: 20th to 25th of May 2021 at the… Read More Civil Engineering Design for Broad Implementation – Applying Emerging Best Practices

Onshore Structural Design – How to Design Each Facility Feature

The structural design of onshore facilities is intricate due to the dependence of the structural engineer on experience, past projects, several internal/external stakeholders for parameters for the design and different codes of practice. For example, if an engineer is to design a vertical vessel, they will require the weight, wind load, bolt positions and size… Read More Onshore Structural Design – How to Design Each Facility Feature
