Design and Analysis of Piperack Structures Using STAAD.Pro

Pipe racks are structures meant to support pipes, power cables, and instrument cable trays in chemical, petrochemical, and power plants. They form the core arteries of a processing unit. That is why such structures need to have a flawless design. But the design requirements that are found in building codes don't clearly explain how they are applicable to pipe racks. Without this knowledge, it can be a challenge for engineers to create pipe rack designs.

Design and Analysis of Piperack Structures Using STAAD.Pro is an intensive course that teaches you the detailed concepts and procedures needed to create a pipe rack structure for any application. The course summarizes the industry practice design criteria and other design considerations followed in the industry. You learn how to design pipe racks in the structural engineering software STAAD Pro.

No prior experience of STAAD.Pro or steel structures are needed to enroll in this course. It is a short-term course of 3 months that is available online. The course fee starts from INR 7,000 for two months of access to INR 15,000 for lifetime access.
