The Art of Structural Engineering

This paper is concerned with the way in which the structural engineer applies his knowledge, skill and experience in the design of structures for buildings. The application of his knowledge-the art of structural engineering-is diflicult to define in the abstract. However, by considering some concrete examples it would appear that the main quality which the structural engineer must develop is an attitude of mind which allows him to apply his knowledge with sensitivity and subtlety and with complete regard for the needs of the building.
