Structural, Civil, and Foundation Engineering

Distressed and deteriorating structures, foundations, and other infrastructure post a great risk to structural integrity, and even subtle damages can undermine overall reliability and safety. Effective structural integrity doesn’t just occur the moment where impairments and deficiencies occur; rather, structural integrity should be a part of a comprehensive mechanical integrity program. Examples of structures and foundations include:

  • Foundations for Support Structures, Tanks, and Compressors
  • Pipe Racks and Pipeline Supports
  • Pressure Vessel Supports
  • Access Platforms and Equipment Decks
  • Frames Supporting Elevated Equipment

Common Issues

Problem areas to observe include cracks, spalling, buckling, foundation shifting, corroded anchor bolts, and aging structures, to name a few. Common deficiencies and damage found in structural steel support structures consist of corrosion, impact and fire damage, overload, and missing bolts/nuts. In concrete, damages could come from carbonation, inadequate coverage, anchor bolt damage/corrosion, and compressor foundation cracking.
