Designing of Blast Resistance Buildings
Course Description
This Design Blast Resistance Buildings for Oil & Gas Field training course will focus about the phenomena of blast load, the dynamic material strength, in addition to the concrete and steel structure design to resist the ballast load. The dynamic analysis technique will be presented, as well as the new materials as CFRP to be used to protect the structure from the blast load. The course content relies heavily on the recently revised ASCE publication for the Design of Blast Resistant-Buildings in Petrochemical Facilities. The design management procedure for industrial projects will be clarified and the entire load that affects the structure building in oil and gas facilities will also be illustrated.
The Training Course Will Highlight ?

This training course will feature:

    • The concrete and steel structure design principal in selecting the suitable structure system
    • The materials response and characteristics
    • The CFRP design principal to resist the building against the blast load
    • The integrity management system procedure, taking into consideration the major factors in design, construction and repair to maintain the concrete structure economically in all its lifetime
Training Objective

    • Familiarity with any problem and its solution in the concrete structure in the petrochemical industry and its causes of failure
    • Familiarize participants with the issues, standards, and procedures used to design structures that resist blast loads.
    • Provide participants with in-depth knowledge of the principles of dynamic analysis.
    • Develop basic competence in the use of available engineering methods for calculating blast loads and dynamic structural response.
    • Provide an overview of the design approach used for typical construction materials (steel, concrete, masonry), Systems (shear walls and frames), non-structural components (doors and windows)
