Training Module Description
 
This course serves as a basic to intermediate level application of SACS software for structuraldesign of offshore platforms and steel structures. Participants are expected to have good graspof structural design engineering principles.Each participant provided a dedicated PC with the necessary software loaded and the trainingcourse will be a combination of PowerPoint presentations and interactive sessions. Theparticipants will also be given the opportunity to develop at least one project-specific deliverableduring the Training Programme.
