Structural engineering is a field of engineering that deals
with the design of any structural system(s), the purpose of
which is to support and resist various loads. Structural engineers
combine the science of engineering with the aesthetics of
design to help architects and contractors create safer, more
economical, and more pleasing structures.
They use physical testing, mathematical modeling, and
computer simulation to check the stability of skyscrapers,
bridges, stadiums, and other large construction projects
before they are built. They apply their knowledge of environmental
science to help develop safe, yet unobtrusive power plants,
pipelines, and other infrastructure systems.
Most commonly structural engineers are
involved in the design of buildings and nonbuilding structures,
but also play an essential role in designing machinery where
structural integrity of the design item is a matter of safety
and reliability. Large man-made objects—everything
from furniture to medical equipment and from vehicles (trucks,
aircraft, spacecraft and watercraft) to cranes—require
the input of a structural engineer.
In building construction, the structural
engineering field is a subset of civil engineering. In a
practical sense, structural engineering is largely the application
of Newtonian mechanics to the design of structural elements
and systems that support buildings, bridges, walls (including
retaining walls), dams, tunnels, etc.
