The structural engineering is a specialised field of engineering that deals with the design, analysis, and construction of structures such as buildings and bridges.


This fiery topic consists of 2-seminar.  During these lectures, some fundamental concepts of structural engineering as outlined below for Building Surveyors are presented:

  1. Load: Structures are designed to support various types of loads, including dead loads, live loads, and environmental loads. 
  2. Forces: Forces act on structures, including different types of forces: compression and tension.  All structures should be designed to withstand these forces to ensure stability.
  3. Materials: Structural engineers work with a variety of materials, such as concrete, steel, wood, and masonry. Each material has different properties and is suitable for specific types of structures. 
  4. Structural Analysis: Before designing a structure, structural analysis should be performed to determine its strength and stability. This involves calculating the internal forces and stresses within the structure and ensuring it can withstand the expected loads.
  5. Structural Design: Once the analysis is complete, structural design would be performed to determine the appropriate size, shape, and arrangement of structural elements to ensure the safety and functionality of the structure.
