Pipeline Support Design

Basic knowledge of structural analysis and design is enough to solve the most complicated type of pipe support structure.

Civil-structural engineers know how difficult it is to come up with a safe, economical design to support the piping loads, especially when final piping drawings are not available. Civil-structural engineers are the last to get all the information but the first group required to produce construction drawings to meet the schedules. Civil engineers must be able to reach into their bag of tricks and dream up a structure to meet all these needs in a hurry.
