Blast resistancec steel structure design Example:Part 3
What you'll learn
- how to design the steel structue under blast load
- design for different steel element
- apply SDOF and MDOF methods
- foundation design under blast load
- civil or structure engineering knowledge
This course part 3 objective is to present the application of the blast resistance analysis and design for steel structure by a complete example. This course is part 3 as in part 1 is focusing to cover the blast load phenomena and the materials properties values under blast load. This part present also the methods of analyzing the structure under blast load and part2 is the application on example of blast resistance for the concrete structure. In this part 3 presents the case study illustrates the application of blast analysis by using the graph method, the closed formula and also the single degree of freedom (SDOF) by the integration method will be applied. The Newark integration method is illustrated in part1 and in this part3 presents this method and apply it through an excel sheet. These methods for applying structure analysis will be applied for the roof deck, roof purine, wall panel, wall girt and the frame structure and the bracing structure system as usual.
The multi degree of freedom (MDOF) method is also applied for the steel frame by using nonlinear analysis. The foundation design check for blast load will be discuss by checking the overturning, sliding and also design the foundation based on the maximum dynamic load.
Who this course is for:
- junior and senior structure or civil engineer
Mohamed A. El-Reedy's background is in structural engineering. His main area of research is the reliability of concrete and steel structures. He has provided consulting to different engineering companies and oil and gas industries in Egypt and to international companies such as the International Egyptian Oil Company (IEOC) and British Petroleum (BP). Moreover, he provides different concrete and steel structure design packages for residential buildings, warehouses, and telecommunication towers and electrical projects with WorleyParsons Egypt. He has participated in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Natural Gas Liquid (NGL) projects with international engineering firms.Currently, Dr. El-Reedy is responsible for reliability, inspection, and maintenance strategy for onshore concrete structures and offshore steel structure platforms. He has performed these tasks for hundreds of structures in the Gulf of Suez in the Red Sea.
Dr. El-Reedy has consulted with and trained executives at many organizations, including the Arabian American Oil Company (ARAMCO), bp, Apachi, Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA), the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, and King Saudi's Interior ministry, Qatar Telecom, the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation, Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corporation, the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, and Qatar Petrochemical Company (QAPCO). He has taught technical courses about repair and maintenance for reinforced concrete structures and the advanced materials in concrete industry worldwide, especially in the Middle East.
Dr. El-Reedy has written numerous publications and has presented many papers at local and international conferences sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Concrete Institute, the American Society for Testing and Materials, and the American Petroleum Institute. He has published many research papers in international technical journals and has authored many books published worldwide about offshore structures, advanced materials in concrete construction and corrosion of reinforced concrete structure, Construction management and design of industrial concrete and steel structures and Project management for industrial projects. He received his bachelor's degree from Cairo University in 1990, his master's degree in 1995, and his Ph.D from Cairo University in 2000.
