Background Research

A structural engineer designs a structure such as building, bridges, tower etc. to withstand 

forces. Forces come from many sources such as the weight of the building, the people inside 

the building, earthquake, wind or any other environmental loads. When designing a 

structure the engineer must account for its safety, aesthetics and serviceability while taking 

in to consideration economic and environmental constraints. The design process is both 

creative and technical and requires fundamental knowledge of material properties and laws 

of mechanics that govern material response.
