A two-volume package comprising 'Structural design – the engineer’s role' and 'Structural design – achieving excellence'.

Structural design – the engineer’s role:

The first part of a two-volume introduction to structural engineering, aimed at those who may need to seek advice from a structural engineer in the future, and for engineering students wishing to understand the role of the structural designer in a little more detail. Short chapters focus on:

  • The knowledge and abilities of a structural engineer

  • The design process and how it is undertaken

  • Agreeing the brief 

  • Preparing the scheme design

  • Detailed design

  • Procurement

  • The construction stage

 

Structural design – achieving excellence:

The second part of a two-volume introduction to structural engineering; this part is aimed at graduate structural engineers, covering the fundamental considerations of cost, beauty, stability and strength. Short chapters focus on:

  • The responsibilities of a structural engineer

  • Engaging in design

  • Structural design philosophies

  • Stability, robustness and serviceability

  • Demonstrating structural adequacy

  • Communicating the design

  • The construction stage (incl. contractual relationships, temporary works and site inspections)
