Structural Steel Design and Construction by European code
Course Description
Steel is the most used construction material in the USA and Europe 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. Its use in the Middle East region has been mostly confined to industrial plants, offshore structures and warehouses. The lower construction time and it can be used as a temporary structure make it competitive than the concrete structure. All the countries who is working by BS will be switch to the EC within the next years. Design of steel structures has widely been based on the Allowable Stress Design based on the EC. Many designers and fabricators still use the old allowable stress techniques. The petroleum industry is interesting in modify the structure in case of offshore structures topsides or in the on shore facilities to carry more load or add more machine so the management of change must be considered and important.
The Training Course Will Highlight ?
Training Objective

    • This short course is intended to overview modern procedures for the design and erection of structural steel buildings especially for oil and gas industry.
    • The attendees will be familiar with the European code (EC) and will know the comparison between it and the BS.
    • This course will increase the knowledge and assist in using new tools for designing and construction the steel structure for new project or modify the existing one.
    • The interaction between concrete and steel will be defined. The anchor bolts, machine skid design, construction and installation will be discussed theoretically and practically.
    • For those engineers with limited practical experience the course will illustration of real design and construction issues that may assist the designer to conceive of a structural steel system that is safe, economical and constructible.
    • The rule of thumb to check the steel structure or to
      modify the deck in case of offshore and onshore structures.
    • The course will be started from the basics to ensure the full
      participation of all attendees.
