carbamide evaporator station
nevinnomyssky Azot designed a metallic tiered carbamide evaporator station
with rigid knots on the frame connected over high-strength bolts. overlappings
on the first tier were executed with monolithic ferro-concrete with metal beams.
overlappings for other levels were executed with metal trellised flooring.
Fireproof screens were in the form of a metal skeleton with a zinc covering.
Using proSteel, Autopl An T, and Bentley View to create the design reduced
project time by 20 percent due to the ability to integrate work from the different
Bentley products. nevinnomyssky Azot estimated that this translated into a 15
percent cost reduction on this $150,000 project.
The Agra municipal corporation is among the largest municipalities in the
state of Uttar pradesh, India. It serves an estimated population of nearly 1. 7
million. A water supply project in the village of palra involved the construction
of a 370-million-liters-per-day plain sedimentation tank and ancillary works.

Agra water supply project
The scope of work included analysis and design of the building’s footings,
columns, beams, and slabs. STAAD.pro modeled the column and beam members
as a space frame aligned with the center line of the members and foundation
supports. loads from the slabs and walls were transferred to adjacent beams
as uniformly distributed loads. nJS engineering selected required codes from
the STAAD.pro to ensure the structure’s safety and durability.
