Different requirements are in place for the design of reinforced concrete liquid-containing structures than building structures. The design must meet the code requirements of ACI 350 “Design Requirements for Environmental Structures”. Special considerations must be given for loading scenarios, durability requirements, reinforcement detailing, and serviceability-response of the system in order to design a watertight structure.
This training course is designed to impart the existing knowledge and provide hands-on experience on the design of liquid-containing concrete structures. Attentive trainees will be able to:
- Know how reinforced concrete liquid-containing structures behave
- Understand the loads affecting liquid-containing structures
- Recognize the analysis scenarios required for liquid-containing structures
- Understand the importance of durability requirements in liquid-containing structures
- Learn the design and detailing requirements of liquid-containing structures per code requirements
- Use the lessons learned to avoid a leaking structure.
The short course on the structural design of liquid-containing concrete structures is designed for: Structural engineers, Environmental engineers, Civil engineers
Participants need to have some idea on using structural software, preferably, STAAD.Pro or AutoDesk Robot
About Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research
KISR is a pioneering, independent, national institute of scientific excellence. KISR’s initial role was dedicated to developing three fields of national importance: petroleum, desert agriculture, and marine biology. Since then, KISR’s role and responsibilities have expanded greatly to include the advancement of national industry and the undertaking of studies to address key challenges, such as the preservation of the environment, sustainable management of Kuwait’s natural resources, responsible management of water and energy, and development of innovative methods of agriculture.
KISR’s approach to meeting challenges is distinguished by a culture of openness, a commitment to our clients, and an integrated, cross-disciplinary approach. KISR routinely embarks on strategic partnerships with other regional and international institutes, agencies, and academic bodies, allowing an exchange of knowledge and expertise. Today, KISR is home to over 580 researchers and engineers and over 100 laboratories, housed at 8 locations, with growth expected through the implementation of a new strategic plan. KISR conducts scientific research and performs technological consultations, often in partnership with other regional and international institutions, for governmental and industrial clients in Kuwait, the Gulf region, and the rest of the world. These partnerships, driven by a philosophy of collaboration that runs deep within our culture, help build up our knowledge base, and facilitate the free flow of information, data, and expertise. This adds value to our clients’ business and ensures that the resources needed to confront the challenges They face are always available on demand.See all Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research courses
