Mechanical Design and Stress Analysis of Process Skid /Modular packages

Dear all forum members !
Could someone please give me an insight on the mechanical design aspect of Process Skid /Modular packages in Oil & Gas industry?
I have a couple of questions on it like:-
  • How the mechanical design of Process Skid /Modular packages initiated ?
  • What are the inputs or information (PFD/P&ID/Datasheet etc.)required to start with(I mean from scratch)?
  • 3D Modeling of Skid structure is done by Process discipline or mechanical design team or collaboratively?
  • What the Mechanical Design Engineer has to do further if 3D Modeling of Skid structure is created by Process discipline?
  • What are the main factors to be considered in Skid mechanical design and stress analysis?
  • What are the most often used standard structural sections and materials used in skid construction?
  • Which tool is used for 3D modeling of skid structure and which for stress analysis?
I am sorry if my post appears a bit longer but I would really appreciate a detailed reply.

Thanks in advance
