• Structural Rehabilitation Staff

Participants of this workshop will gain a basic knowledge of structural engineering that includes principles of analysis of structures and their application, the behavior of materials under loading, selection of construction materials and design fundamentals for RCC and steel structures.
This training course will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented. This includes formal lectures and interactive worked examples included in several workshops. Presented also will be several illustrative and instructive videos. The emphasis in the seminar will be on the explanation of all technical points and providing answers to problems that are encountered in everyday industrial practice related to operation and maintenance, as well as repair and alterations of industrial heating equipment
