Structural engineers are key engineers who are responsible for analyzing, designing, planning and researching to achieve custom design goals for structures.
What is structural engineering?
Structural engineering is a science that deals with the structural performance of materials and their geometries. The design involves and utilizes simple structural elements to construct complex systems.
It depends on material science, applied mechanics, and mathematics in order to understand and presume how construction elements resist self-weight and support structures.
A structural engineer would require sufficient knowledge about design codes, techniques, and knowledge of the corrosive nature of structures and materials.
Today, structural engineers make use of AutoCAD, StaadPro, Prokon, and others to help them assist in the design and analysis of structural components.
