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 – 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

Onshore Structural Design – What is it all about?

There are a number of civil and structural engineers who have attempted to work in the power, petrochemical or even the oil industry without success. They usually find themselves to be unqualified due to the specialist nature of the structural engineering approach in the sector. Some reasons young engineers do not have the requisite skills… Read More Onshore Structural Design – What is it all about?
