Structural Engineering

Structural engineering is a branch of civil engineering that focuses on the design and analysis of structures such as buildings, bridges, towers, and other load-bearing structures.  Structural engineers use their knowledge of physics, mathematics, and materials science to ensure that structures are safe, durable, and able to withstand the loads they will experience over their lifespan.  The work of a structural engineer typically involves analyzing and designing structures to withstand gravity, wind, earthquakes, and other natural or man made forces.  They use computer aided design (CAD) software, as well as physical models, to simulate how a structure will behave under various conditions and to optimize its design.

Structural engineers are also responsible for ensuring that a structure meets all applicable building codes and safety standards.  They work closely with architects, construction managers, and other professionals to ensure that a project is designed and constructed to meet the needs of its intended use, while also being safe and cost effective.

In addition to designing new structures, structural engineers also assess the safety and stability of existing structures, such as bridges or buildings that may have been damaged by natural disasters or other events.  They may also work on retrofitting projects to improve the safety and performance of older structures.  Structural engineering is a critical field in the construction industry, helping to ensure that the structures we use and rely on every day are safe and stable.
