WHAT IS STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING?

BASIC INFORMATION ON STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING


Structural engineering, being considered a field of specialty within the realm of civil engineering, is the application of math and science to the design of structures, including buildings, bridges, storage tanks, transmission towers, roller coasters, aircraft, space vehicles, and much more, in such a way that the resulting product will safely resist all loads imposed upon it.

The design of structures has always involved theory, buttressed by testing and direct observation, and a professional engineer is able to make wise use of intuition and experience to bring theoretical truths into reality.

In order to develop an adequate understanding of structures that are designed, an engineer must make justifiable approximations and assumptions in regards to materials used and loading imposed and must also simplify the problem in order to develop a workable mathematical model.
