Reinforced concrete structures are widely used in industrial sector, especially in the onshore oil and gas fields. In industrial projects, the structure design applications are different than normal housing projects taught in educational / engineering institutions. This COINMAC Concrete Structure Designing for Industrial Projects training course will fill the gap between the academic knowledge and the professionalism for industrial project design in general, and specifically for oil & gas and power generation projects.

The basis of design for concrete structure for strength, serviceability and robustness is considered in the course. ACI, Eurocodes, UBC and ASCE codes will also be covered to enable the participants choose suitable design method to serve business safety and operability. The probability of failure, specifically in ACI and Eurocodes, will be discussed and the key steps in design and review design will be illustrated.

This COINMAC training course on Concrete Structure Designing for Industrial Projects will feature:

  • Review of Different Codes and Standards
  • The Importance of Construction and Maintenance
  • The Dynamic Analysis and Design for Concrete in the Industrial Plant
  • Industry Practice in the Structure Design
  • Integration between Different Disciplines in Designing
  • Effect of Sustainable Design to Enhance Project Investment Lifecycle


This COINMAC training course is intended to provide the participants with:

  • An overview of modern and effective procedures for the design of reinforced concrete structures in the Oil & Gas industry
  • Knowledge on calculation for reinforced concrete elements used in the Oil & Gas industry
  • Increase the knowledge and assist in using new tools for designing and reviewing the design for new project or modify the existing one
  • Knowledge on the design of foundation under all types of vibrating equipment, and the blast design of buildings
  • An illustration of real design issues that may assist the designer to provide concrete structure that is safe, economical and constructible
  • The rule of thumb to check the concrete design with associated check list

Training Methodology

This COINMAC Concrete Structure Designing for Industrial Projects training seminar will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. The daily workshops will be highly interactive and participative. Videos and photos will be used for illustration.

Organisational Impact

  • Reduce the engineering cost as the attendees will be capable to do engineering in-house
  • Reduce cost for repair and maintenance by enhancing the repair methodology
  • Improve the organization performance by knowing the Up to date design and construction technique its technical practice
  • Improve the project cost and time by better controlling the design stage

Personal Impact

  • Enhance the concrete design capability of the trainee for different foundation types
  • Increase knowledge of up to date of execution phase
  • Increase the skill for maintenance approach
  • Increase the skill to enhance quality of all phases of the oil and gas projects

Who Should Attend?

This COINMAC Concrete Structure Designing for Industrial Projects training course is intended to provide professionals and engineers to be familiar with American Concrete Institute Standard (ACI) and Eurocodes for concrete structure designing.

This COINMAC training course will also be beneficial for junior or senior level civil and structure engineers who need to have in-depth knowledge about the structural engineering activities and how to co-operate in the design phase.
