Debarshi Das, Kelly Eberle- Wood Group

Reciprocating Compressors

This presentation will outline best practices for designing safe and economical driven steel pile foundations. Attendees will learn about: Definition of soil properties, Pile arrangement and design goals for pile foundations, Rules of thumb for preliminary foundation sizing, Design practices for reciprocating compressor packages with pile foundations, Pile-to-skid connections, Local skid reinforcements, and Analysis requirements for skid and foundation design Emphasis will be placed on the dynamic requirements as this aspect of the foundation design is often overlooked.
