Structural Dynamics Analysis of Compressor Frame, California, Berkely (May 2021)
Hingeneering conducted the dynamic analysis and resonance check for compressor skid for an oil and gas company in California, United States. The scope of work included the investigation of the modal analysis and natural frequency for compressor steel frame along with the mechanical components. Then a proposal for the structural steel reinforcement was presented after running the modal analysis and natural frequency prediction to confirm that there is no more resonance in the mechanical/structural system. and to mitigate the excessive vibrations induced.

Utilidor Platform Structural Inspection, Warburg, Alberta (December 2017)
HINGENEERING Consulting provided the site inspection services for the erection of structural steel platform connected to silos in an industrial plant in Warburg, Alberta.
Dynamic Analysis for Air Coolers in Fort St. John, British Columbia (October 2017)
HINGENEERING Consulting provided the structural engineering assessment and investigation of the vibration effects due to a newly upgraded air cooler fan motors and gearboxes in an oil and gas facility in Fort St. John, British Columbia.
After such upgrade took place, relatively high vibration amplitudes was observed and measured in all directions (along the axis of the motor and gearbox, horizontally as well as vertically) at the supports of the gearbox and the motor.
Moreover, the high vibrations affected the supporting steel structure. The air cooler motor and gearbox supporting structure is mainly consists of steel platform framing supported by end plates and vertical hangers to the roof of the structure, which is supported on 4 steel columns and screw piles at each corners.
The purpose of the structural report was to investigate the dynamic behavior of the existing steel structure that supports the gear box and the motor by running modal analysis. Moreover, the natural frequency of the steel structure and the cooler fan motor and gearbox should be evaluated to avoid any possible resonance phenomenon.
Finally, the report highlighted the possible steel structure reinforcements required to reduce or mitigate the velocity vibration effect induced from the cooler fans motor and gearbox on the supporting steel structure.
Plains MidStream Shed Building Extension, Drayton Valley, Alberta (September 2016)
Hingeneering Consulting had carried out the structural analysis and design for an extension of an existing shed building on behalf of Kandrea Insulation Ltd. The roof and wall panels are fabricated from cold formed steel sections.
NewAlta Self Framed Gable Building, Drayton Valley, Alberta (November 2016)
Hingeneering Consulting had been invited by Kandrea Insulation Ltd. to provide the engineering services for roof and wall panels, which are used in the construction of self-framed gable for NewAlta building. Kandrea Insulation Ltd is manufacturing these buildings within its production facility in Drayton Valley, Alberta. The roof and wall panels will be fabricated using cold formed steel sections using two gauge thicknesses: 20 and 22.
Machine Foundation Assessment, Rocky Mountain House, Alberta (March 2016)
Hingeneering Consulting had been invited by Summit Services Group Ltd. to provide an engineering assessment and investigation of the vibration effects due to a blower fan on its concrete foundation in an existing industrial facility. The purpose of this report is to investigate the structural condition of the concrete foundation due to the dynamic forces induced by the blower fan. Moreover, the natural frequency of the foundation and the blower fan system should be evaluated to avoid any possible resonance. Finally, the report will highlight the possible alternatives to reduce or mitigate the velocity vibration effect induced from the blower fan on the supporting concrete foundation.
Vallhall Re-development Project, Stavanger, Norway
From August 2006 till June 2008, Dr. Farag (Hingeneeing Director) was a senior structural engineer for Fabricom AS, Stavanger, Norway. The project budget cost of $ 2.3 billion dollars offshore Norway. During this period, he was responsible for the finite element model for living quarter modules using SESAM (Ginei Module), where various dead, live, wind loads were superimposed. He participated in the FEED study for the Power from Shore Module (PFS). The study included analysis and design of the module using STAAD PRO and using Eurocode and NORSOK for design of steel members. Moreover, he supervised junior engineers to carry out structural analysis and design and responsible for review of engineering drawings developed by the PDMS designers. He carried out the structural analysis using STAAD PRO for Tower 10 pipe rack on DP Platform.
