6056408596_710b88b592_b-1000x750.jpgOur Structural Engineering department takes pride in designing structures in accordance with National and International Standards, by utilizing the latest technology, structural design software and detailing packages. With our exstensive experience in the design and analysis of steel structures we can provide a wide range of structural steel designs such as, but not limited to:

  • Rail, road and marine loading gantries
  • Static marine loading arms
  • Elevated conveyor structures
  • Support trestles
  • Pipe bridges
  • Roof structures and warehouses
  • Lifting beams
  • Reflux classifiers
  • Constant Feed classifiers
  • Boom stackers

To satisfy static, dynamic and fatique applications we conduct Linear, Second Order, Buckling and Dynamic Analysis utilizing PROKON design software. Dynamic analysis includes the following:

  • Model
  • Seismic
  • Harmonic

Design Standards

British Standards

  • BS EN 1990 Eurocode 0: Basis of structural design
  • BS EN 1991-1-1 to 7 Eurocode 1: Actions on structures
  • BS EN 1993-1 to 6 Eurocode 3: Design of steel structures
  • BS EN 1998-1 to 6 Eurocode 8: Design of structures for earthquake resistance

South African National Standards

  • SANS 10160: Basis of structural design and action for buildings and industrial structures
  • SANS 10162: The structural use of steel

Structural Assessment

According to Regulation 9(4) of the Construction Regulation of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85/1993 all new structures must be inspected once every 6 months for the first two years and thereafter annually.

NEDA Engineering as an Approved Inspection Authority can assist in performing such inspections. These inspections address the following:

  • Indications of overload such as buckling and twisting
  • Detection of mechanical damage
  • Attachment details include bolting and welding
  • Corrosion and erosion
  • Condition of plinth, foundations and anchor bolts.
