This project was about the design of trestles included in the plans to expand an existing oil terminal. Some sections of the existing trestle structures were not capable to carry additional pipeline loads. MUC Engineering was assigned to carry out the civil design work for the offshore trestle. The design work comprised the verification of the structural performance of the existing trestle, the design of additional pipe racks and strengthening and verification of pile capacities. From the model output of Scia Engineer it was concluded that all the steel members were within the allowable stress/capacity limits for the new piping load.
