command Hospital for northern command of Indian Army
The $89.5 million command hospital in the city of Udhampur provides medical
relief for casualties of the Indian Army’s northern command, which defends
India’s border in harsh climates. After a delay in startup, military engineering
Services redesigned the original plans for the hospital to meet current building
codes, including requirements for safe construction in seismic Zone 4 using
Fe500 steel and m25 concrete mixes.
military engineering Services deployed S TAAD.pro and S TAAD.foundation.
The project was designed, modeled, and optimized in 3D. The process enabled
military engineering Services to adjust section sizes and depths while
considering all aspects of safety and strength. Steel tonnage was reduced
sufficiently to save a significant amount in costs.
complex Isomerization of gasoline
In a facility for the isomerization of gasoline, a battery of tanks receives and
stores the arriving components of the gasoline. These components are moved
from the tanks into a mixer where they are used prepare commodity gasoline.
mozirski npZ designed the tank battery structure for a complex gasoline
isomerization plant in mozyr, Belarus.
The project included 10 tanks for reception and storage, six pumps for pumping
isomerizate into the mixer, an emergency tank, a drainage tank, a gas separator,
and pipelines. AutoplAn T and proSteel were used for modeling and generation
of 2D drawings and isometric drawings. A custom template for isometrics
automatically filled in information about pipelines. overall design time was
reduced by 20 percent.
