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

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
