Structural engineering is the science and art of applying engineering principles to the design and construction of structures. Structural engineering takes into account the strength and stability of a built structure as well as its safety, durability, and sustainability. A Structural Engineer's job is to identify an overall design strategy, analyze & evaluate the proposed design, develop plans and details, check the calculations & structuring techniques, review designs for cost effectiveness and environmental impact, and oversee construction projects.
Structural Engineers are involved in a wide variety of projects, from commercial buildings like skyscrapers to bridges and transportation systems. They are experts in understanding the static forces and dynamic forces that impact a structure's performance over time. This knowledge allows them to identify potential failure points in a design before a project proceeds - ensuring all designs are safe, efficient, and appropriate for the intended purpose.
Here’s some projects that our expert Structural Engineers made real:
- Performing calculations for structures like RSJ calculation, analysis, beams etc.
- Designing structures that uses big timber rafters & log homes or creating site plan & foundation plan for post frame buildings
- Incorporating static & strength physics into designs
