New materials and methods in residential and commercial construction are constantly being brought to market which offer efficient and cost-effective solutions.
Structural Engineering is a branch of Civil Engineering concerned with the design of structures such as buildings, bridges, dams, walls, etc. It involves the application of physics and mechanics, to design structures that are functional while ensuring that they do not collapse or bend, twist or vibrate in an unsafe fashion. Sturctural Engineering includes the design of load bearing beams, columns, walls, slabs, and floors from simple to complex strutures such as a multi-story building. Mathematical calculations are performed to determine the most suitable structural system for various building materials such as steel, wood, masonry and concrete
