An overview of the tasks undertaken by structural engineers during design and construction.

It can also be purchased as part of a two-volume package.

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:

  • 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)

The first volume Structural design - the engineer's role is 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.
