Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

Steel is the most used construction material in the USA for industrial buildings, high-rise towers, bridges and other structures. It competes with reinforced concrete in the world because of its many favorable characteristics including high strength, high stiffness, ductility and toughness, speed of erection, competitive cost, etc. In the Middle East region, steel is mostly use in industrial plants, offshore structures and warehouses. The speed for construction and its use for building temporary structure make it competitive than concrete.

The design of steel structures that has been widely based on the Allowable Stress Design (ASD), AISC, BS and EC3 will be discussed. This PetroKnowledge Structural Steel Design training course will be presented to enable the trainees of design most elements of steel structure in addition to connections.

The petroleum industry’s interest to modify the structure in the on-shore facilities to carry more load or add more machines so the integrity management of change must be considered important. The composite section design and FRP will be presented in this training course. The pushover analysis will be discussed to define the probability of failure for industrial structure.

This Structural Steel Design training course will feature:

  • Case studies from different industry
  • The codes and standard with technical practice in this field
  • The new trend of integrity management system will be presented
  • The design of most elements of steel structure
  • The capability of review the engineering and pitfalls in construction
