What Is Structural Engineering?

Structural engineering is a specialty branch of civil engineering that is mostly concerned with public safety. It involves designing framework structures and making sure they can withstand all kinds of environmental stresses and strains.

What Do Structural Engineers Do?

structural-engineeringStructural engineers design buildings and large civic structures, such as homes and hotels. It’s also their job to calculate the stresses building materials can safely withstand. They can also oversee the construction process of support beams, columns, and foundations. They’re also in charge of ensuring the physical integrity of these structures, so they remain safe, durable, and secure throughout their use.

The presence of structural engineers is required during site investigation and survey to determine whether the site is suitable for the project. They also manage the procurement of the right materials and equipment needed for construction. 

How to Hire a Structural Engineer
