In the oil and gas industry one of the main structural design codes used worldwide is ASCE 7-16 (American Society of Civil Engineering), this building code is continuously being revised and adapted to new research, tests, and comparisons with real data, approximately these reviews have 5-10 year cycles.


These reviews are based on a consensus of input led by the ASCE 7  CSC committee that includes voting by a standards committee and review during a public comment period, considering construction data and lessons learned, views of owners and investors, universities, societies, and other institutional bodies, all to guarantee those specific performance realities are achieved.


The updated version of ASCE 7-16 is more demanding regarding the design earthquake forces system, this affects the final detailing and could affect construction costs if the Structural Engineer does not dedicate design time in the details since the Engineers Structural designs must be designed with higher seismic demands compared to previous designs.


Under the new ASCE 7-16, the use of the same response spectrum for a building designed and purchased with the same building designed by ASCE 7-10, will yield a 60% -80% increase in seismic demand.


What does this mean?
This means that ASCE 7-16 has sanctioned some locations, and has also updated the site's amplification factors, of course, based on new research.


Does using higher site amplification factors necessarily lead to higher demands?
No, the use of more rigorous site response analysis or soil movement hazard analysis approaches allowed by ASCE 7-16, could help reduce demands by providing more realistic and site-specific earth movements.


Will design earthquake loads be affected?
Yes, of course, this rigorous design approach could force the Structural Engineer to dedicate more design time and undoubtedly more detailing work, which will directly influence structural design rates, however, not necessarily an increase. in construction costs, because it can be avoided by the significant and obvious reductions in design earthquake forces, which could be up to 20%.


In conclusion, will construction costs be affected more by the rise?
No, accepting the new ASCE 7-16 requirements forces the Structural Engineer to apply a more rigorous design approach, which will lead to more realistic and potentially lower seismic demands that could reduce overall construction costs.

 

This publication is a unique book that covers problems and solutions involved in the design of facilities for the oil and gas industries, benefiting from everything related to earthquake-resistant design for these structures including design procedures and practical examples.

 

This publication has been developed to privide professional guidance to Structural Engineers involved in the conception, design, detailing, and earthquake-resistant evaluation of oil and gas installations within the concept of the ASC 360-16 Specification for Structural Steel Building,  and ASCE 7-16 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures.
 

Aimed at:
 - Civil Engineers
- Structural Engineers
- Professionals who develop structural projects for the oil and gas industry.
- Professionals who develop the construction of structures for the oil and gas industry.
- Leveling and updating for Civil Engineers, Technicians in the area.

 

This publication has been developed to privide professional guidance to Structural Engineers involved in the conception, design, detailing, and earthquake-resistant evaluation of oil and gas installations within the concept of the ASC 360-16 Specification for Structural Steel Building design codes. and ASCE 7-16 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures.

It is intended to serve several objectives:


a) Aid to Structural Engineers better understand the intent behind certain provisions of seismic design codes so that the provisions can be applied more appropriately and uniformly to the structures of seismic facilities. oil and gas.

b) To guide  the practice of earthquake engineering beyond what is covered in building codes.

c) Make known the background information on the technical requirements related to the seismic-resistant evaluation of facilities for oil and gas industry, which are not always well understood by Structural Engineers.

d) Provide specific knowledge for the earthquake-resistant evaluation of existing oil and gas facilities.

e) Provide necessary analytical guidance applicable to structures for facilities of oil and gas industry, to alert Structural Engineers and operations personnel to areas other than structural where earthquakes could affect the safety for facilities of of oil and gas industry.

Topics included in this publication address earthquake-resistant design for new structures and provide guidance for evaluation and modification of existing structures in oil and gas facilities.
