What Type of MATH is used in Blueprints?
Specifically, I need to know what kind of math is utilized in blueprints for building Offshore Oil Rig Platforms but I guess a construction blueprint is a construction blueprint.

Thanks for your help!

Hahaha! I'm not sure you know what construction plans are. Are you referring to the scale of the drawings? The calculations that may be included in the set?

You need loads of math to read blueprints. For instance if you are a mason, you're looking at the wall in 8" or 16" increments (size of brick & block length, respectively), you need to convert feet to inches, to determine how many brick or block you need.

No one who doesn't know basic math, can read blueprints.

Well, generally there is a scale to the drawings. Just need to know how to use a scale to measure them. No math per se.

Are you trying to build, without experience, an offshore oil rig some time in the near future? Blow one up?

It would help if you gave a hint as to what you are actually trying to figure out on a blueprint.

Yes, and some blueprints use an Architectural scale (ex: 1/4" on the drawing = 1 ft on the ground) and some use an Engineering scale (ex: 1:50 means 1 cm on the drawing = 50 cm on the ground)

Haha! That'd be a hell of an undertaking! I've never been involved with Oil platformplans, but I know for buildings and developments, there is a whole team of Architects, civil engineers, mechanical engineers, structural engineers and environmentalists.. I guess you'd probably add in petroleum engineering into the mix on a oil platform. Add all that expertise up and that's a whole lotta schooling and math..

Thanks for the answers, really appreciate it.

No, I have no plans to build an offshore oil rig...
it's a writing project, so I don't need detailed info.

Just having trouble finding out what sort of maths are used to read offshore oil rig blueprints.

I think algebra & def geometry are used, but wasn't sure if it goes any deeper than that.

thanks1

I'm always amazed at the engineering that goes into platforms. Not even just the physical plant, but the oil exploration, the giant drilling ships searching for pockets of black gold, and even moving the plant from port to sea is amazing. Thoughts on pollution aside, the fact that people can do this stuff is incredible.

It's really is fascinating. The sheer scope of everything involved is astounding. I was watching a show about saturation divers/welders the other day. This is an intense job. They stay pressurized, at depth, for 28 days. Breathing a mix of O and He the entire time. Then, after their 28 day hitch, they decompress for 6 days.. They make anywhere from 45,000 to 90,000 a month, depending on the depth. Crazy..
