Course Overview

Blast loads, concrete structures, steel structures, and dynamic material strengths are among the things that this Zoe course will focus on regarding the design of blast-resistant buildings in the oil and petrochemical industry. In this course, participants will be given the necessary skills to develop dynamic analysis methods that will utilise materials such as the CFRP to protect different structures against blast load.

What is blast resistant building?

Thoroughly prepared by experts and experienced professionals, this course will give an understanding of the current guidelines for steel and concrete structural design. This is done to resist blast in any petrochemical project. In addition to designing new buildings and structures, a guide on how to upgrade the already existing to conform to the new standards will also be given. Typical and in-depth details and ancillaries such as dynamic materials usage, doors and windows, allowable response criteria, design procedures, and analysis techniques and methods will also be covered.

What is the most blast resistant material?

Various dynamic analysis methods will be taught in this course, including details of how dynamic analysis is used for designing blast-resistant buildings, simple and complex hand calculations, existing graphical solutions, computer-based software that is complex, and an in-depth mixture of all these methods to produce the best results.

Professionals who wish to stand out in their career will greatly benefit from this course that will be modern and up to date to cover the recently updated and revised ASCE publication for the design of blast-resistant buildings in the petrochemical industry.

This course intends to highlight the following:

  • The new CFRP design techniques and principles to resist blast load
  • The concrete and steel structure principles of design and how to select the right structure system
  • Integrity management system processes, construction, and repairs to maintain steel and concrete structures while cutting down the costs
  • Considering major factors in the design process

Course Objectives

The main objectives of this course are to enable participants to:

  • Examine in detail the existing structures to ensure they follow the best blast-resistant design
  • Thoroughly understand the design process of developing blast-resistant structures
  • Review the existing documentation on the designs used in any of the petrochemical industry buildings and structures
  • Predict accurately in risks involved in the current designs of the blast-resistant buildings
  • Use enhanced tools and techniques to upgrade existing buildings and structures to meet the minimum requirements and recommendations for petrochemical buildings
  • Contribute to organisational development by ensuring best practices and international standards are followed
  • Familiarise the participants with the standards, challenges, issues, and procedures used to design the best structures that resist blast load
  • Develop basic competence in the use and application of existing engineering methods for calculating blast load and dynamic structural response
  • Understand the existing problems and how to effectively solve them in the concrete structures that are used in the petrochemical industry
  • Provide a comprehensive overview of the design approach used for typical construction materials such as masonry, steel, concrete, and systems
  • Provide in-depth knowledge of the principles of dynamic analysis

Training Methodology

This course is prepared and will be delivered by industry best professionals who have years of experience in both their fields and teaching. Different methods will be used, such as notes, presentations, lectures, and case studies. The course is designed to ensure the participants have the best comprehension rates with better retention of what will be taught.

Participants are highly encouraged to be active and engaging during the delivery to ensure maximum utilisation of the course.

Organisational Benefits

Organisations that will have professionals who have undertaken this course stand to benefit in the following ways:

  • Detailed risk assessment of the existing petrochemical facilities structures
  • Conformance to the international standards and best practices

  • Improve the organisation’s structure behaviour with up-to-date technology and techniques
  • Protect the organisational structures and investments by designing structures that can withstand blast load
  • Improve the organisational credibility by improving the quality of designs
  • Regular and continuous training of other employees due to working alongside experienced professionals

Personal Benefits

Professionals who will opt to take this course will benefit in the following ways:

  • Deep understanding of the structure of dynamic behaviour
  • A sense of pride contributes to organisational development and credibility
  • Increased and improved skills to review the engineering of blast resistance building
  • Enhanced foresight to combat risks that can come up due to poorly designed buildings
  • Greater potential to manage organisational costs by reducing poor designs
  • Update execution phase for blast resistance
