Course Content

This course explores the design of steel tanks, bins and silos, in particular from the context of mitigating against the various possible failure modes. The course compares and contrasts the various international design Standards and approaches to design, in particular highlighting recommended approaches and how our Australian Standards fit into this international context.

The course is aimed specifically at providing design awareness and capability for engineers to ensure quality cost effective outcomes that meet or exceed client expectations. Significant focus is placed on the unique behavioural aspects of these thin-walled cylindrical structures.

Course Outline
