Thank you for your interest in SEAKM Kansas City events. The chapter will resume monthly meetings in September 2023.
DATE: Thursday, September 21
TIME: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
LOCATION: KU Edwards Campus
ABSTRACT: In a refinery, heavy revamp projects are normal: to debottleneck a process, to add capacity here or change temperature there. If a distilling unit were a car engine, the equivalent would be continually adding custom parts and pieces to augment and improve the performance. But what happens when you run out of room under the hood? Most of the refineries in the United States are nearing an age where there is little room left under the hood. More and more projects that are required for process reasons are only made feasible if a structural engineer can find the room and air space to add to what was built previously.
BIO: Tony Kulesa is a senior civil/structural engineer who works in the Oil, Gas, and Chemical Division of Burns & McDonnell. He’s active in various ASCE professional committees as well as the current ASCE Kansas City Section President.
