Structural Steel Design
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. 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. Design of steel structures has widely been based on the Allowable Stress Design based on the AISC, BS and EC3 will be discussed. Many designers and fabricators still use the old allowable stress techniques. The course will present ASD and LRFD approach. The petroleum industry is interesting in modify the structure in the on shore facilities to carry more load or add more machine so the integrity management of change must be considered and important. The composite section design and FRP will be presented in the course. The pushover analysis will be discussed to define the structure probability of failure for industrial structure. All example will be related to oil and gas projects in conjunction with the specification for most oil and gas companies worldwide.
