PGD in Design of STEEL Industrial Structures

PGD in Design of STEEL Industrial Structures

It is a definitive design course in Civil Engineering. It focuses on Design & Detailing of Steel structures or facilities in the Process Industrial Plants Esp. Oil & Gas Refineries e.g.Process Plant Buildings (Technological structures, Staircase), Offsites (Pipe racks, Cable Rack, Pipe bridge, Pipe supports, Duct Supports), Storage Yard(Platforms, Cross Overs), Non-Plant Buildings(Warehouse, Workshop), Utilities (Pump shed, Compressor sheds).The syllabus further covers the multi – disciplinary working, the inputs from various disciplines, Quality Procedures & Audits, Squad Check, Duties of Civil Engineer & work flow, the stage wise deliverables (IFA, IFC), loads& load combinations, structural behaviour, Analysis, LSM Design &Detailing of typical structural steel members viz.

Tension/ Compression/ Flexural members, Column Base,SlabBase,Gusseted Base, Shear Key, Anchor/Connection Bolts, Monorail, Gantry Girder, Latticed/ N Girders,Plate Girder,Laced Columns, Built up sections, Portal,Truss, Purlins, Sag Rods, Girts, Brackets, TrestleTowers, Conveyor Supports, PEB : Pre-Engineered Buildings& RFQprocess, Bolted / Welded Connections, Simple, semi-rigid and rigid connection, Shear/ Moment/ Splice/ Bracing/Hanger/Eccentrically Loaded Connections, Cleats, Stiffener/ Gusset/ Splice/ End/ Flange/ CapPlates, Steel Concrete Composite Structure, Encased Steel Structures, Fireproofing, Painting of Structural Steel.
The course will cover the use of the latest versions of IS codes; IS 800, IS 875, & also Introduction to IS1893- P1&P4, SP6, SP38, SP40, PIP standards, common design charts & tables, Fabrication Drawings, Common Software’s viz MS office, STAAD Pro V8i, Tekla, Advance Steel, Pro Steel, AutoCAD, MicroStation, 3D software’s etc.
Furthermore, topics covered will be; BOQ, MTO, introduction to Man Hour Estimation / Blast Resistant Design etc.
The students will obtain the ability to do hand calculations (& guidance to develop spread sheets) for the design of Important Process Plant Steel Members listed above.
The course will contain Email Writing practice, Mock Project/Client/vendor Meetings, Mock Telecons,Regular Assignments, Plant Videos / Drawings, Mock Interview, Corporate Walk Ins& Written Tests guidance, Professional Dress Code tips, Final Examination, Certification, Convocation, Relevant Employer List.


Eligibility: –  Civil/ Structural Engineering UG/ Diploma/ Degree / PG Students or Fresh/ Experienced Working Professionals.
