This one day training course has been specifically designed to give you the ability to prepare a straightforward tank design that will satisfy the requirements of EC2 and CIRIA C660. It is ideal for graduate engineers who have already gained some reinforced concrete design skills and more experienced engineers who are making the change from BS8007 to EC2.
During the training course you will learn about the key aspects of tank design:
Structural analysis - Learn how to design a tank from the use of simple charts and tables to grillage and finite element computer analysis
Thermal and shrinkage - Gain an understanding of how to use CIRIA C660 and how these factors control the design
Flexural and tensile crack control - Learn how to use charts and a spreadsheet to calculate the reinforcement required to control these effects
The course is highly interactive with presentations, discussion and practical tutorials throughout the day. Many of these are demonstrated by using an Excel based design tool created by the course tutor. A copy of the spreadsheet tool, and a free 3 month license for its use, are provided for every attending delegate.*
*To use the tool beyond the 3 month free period, delegates will need to purchase an annual license for this tool which is available, directly from the course tutor, at a discounted price.
