Oil and Gas Engineering Training Courses

Designing of Blast Resistant Buildings for Oil, Gas & Petrochemical Plants


This training will concentrate on dynamic material strength, the phenomenon of blast load, as well as the design of concrete and steel structures to withstand the ballast load. The novel materials, such as CFRP, that will be utilized to shield the structure from the blast load will also be discussed along with the dynamic analysis approach. The freshly updated ASCE publication on the Design of Blast Resistant-Buildings in Petrochemical Facilities is largely used in the material of this training course in civil and construction engineering. Clarification of the design management process for industrial projects will be provided, along with an illustration of the total load that impacts the structure building in oil and gas facilities. This training course will employ several tried-and-true learning approaches to achieve optimal absorption, comprehension, and memory of the knowledge delivered.
This course will cover the following topics:

  • The concrete and steel structure design principles are important in determining the best structure system.
  • The reaction and properties of the material
  • The CFRP design principle was used to protect the structure from blast damage.
  • The integrity management system technique takes into account the primary aspects of design, building, and maintenance to economically maintain the concrete structure during its lifetime.

Targeted Groups

  • Construction Civil Engineers
  • Construction Structural Engineers
  • Junior and Senior Structural Engineers
  • Project Engineers
  • Engineering Managers

Targeted Competencies

  • Bring down costs by learning the most cost-effective technique to construct blast protection structures.
  • Improving organizational structure behavior with cutting-edge technology will be discussed, and its application in real-world projects will be shown.
  • Reduce the cost of structure failure using new building design ideas.
  • Protect the organization's investment by providing a building that can sustain a blast load.

Course Objectives

  • Familiarity with every problem and its remedy in the petrochemical industry's concrete structure, as well as its failure, causes
  • Familiarize participants with the concerns, standards, and processes used to design blast-resistant buildings.
