Structural Engineering: Areas and Applications

Mohit kumar


The area of engineering known as structural engineering is concerned with the strength and structural
integrity of a building or other structure. Civil engineering’s specialization of structural engineering
makes ensuring that buildings are secure, stable, and resistant to collapse under applied loads. It
primarily focuses on the structure’s analysis and design Along with other experts like surveyors,
quantity surveyors, and architectural engineers, a structural engineer also contributes significantly to
the team. Applied physical rules and actual knowledge of the structural performance of various
materials and geometries constitute the foundation of structural engineering theory. In order to create
complicated structural systems, structural engineering design employs a number of relatively
straightforward structural ideas. It is the responsibility of structural engineers to employ resources,
structural components, and materials in innovative and effective ways to accomplish these objectives.
