Structural Engineering is all about designing and analyzing the structures that support or resist. Structural Engineering is considered as an area of specialization or a branch of civil engineering which is one of the oldest fields in Engineering. Civil and Structural Engineering is a specialization of the board domain of Civil Engineering that focuses on design construction, preservation of elements and evaluation. It involves buildings, bridges, towers, flyovers, tunnels offshore structures, Aerostructure and other structures that support and resist the load. Structural Engineering is a branch of Civil Engineering and it utilizes several simple structural elements to build complex structural systems.
Q: What are the basics of Structural Engineering?
A: Mostly it deals with the overall calculation of building/elements. The fundamentals are to understand building forces, actions & reactions, bending, the vibration of a building, analyze earthquake, energy dissipation systems of the building.
Q: What does Structural Engineer do?
A: They work in the office and on the construction site. They have to work in a different location like metropolitan and rural environments too. They design, Investigate the building site, communicate with the team. The overall outcome of a project depends on the idea and management of the Structural Engineer.
