In the oil and gas industry, Petrochemical Engineering is the term used for onshore-based facilities, as opposed to offshore developments. Students following this course will therefore develop skills in the design of petrochemical structures, including their foundations.
Concepts involved in the design of petrochemical structures are introduced, alongside a range of design specifications, case studies and worked examples. In addition to gaining practice in structural steelwork design, the novelty of this course is the inclusion of basic foundation design. Emphasis is placed on good detailing and clarity of presentation of design calculations.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
The key course note chapters are:
1. Petrochemical Structural Engineering Overview
2: Process Steelwork Structures
This course is delivered online, where the students will access the teaching content via the web (MyAberdeen) in 3 blocks at 4 week intervals.
The course tutor will be contactable on the on-line forum, as well as via email.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
Assessment is by coursework alone, and will consist of four pieces of coursework (worth 25%, 25%, 30% and 20% of the total course mark).
Re-sit – The re-sit will comprise of re-doing the failed element/s (exam and/or coursework assessment/s) from the 1st attempt with a maximum CGS mark of D3. The marks for other elements (successfully passed) will be carried over. Resit mark of either RP or RF will be recorded.
Students must complete a series of short multiple choice quizzes to test their understanding of the course notes, and to release further course materials at defined stages through the half session.
Students receive individual, written feedback on their coursework for all three continuous assessment assignments via MyAberdeen. Whole-class feedback will be posted, where indicated.
