An overview of the structural engineering profession and what structural engineers do. It can also be purchased as part of a two-volume package.

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

The second volume Structural design - achieving excellence (aimed primarily at graduate structural engineers) provides more detail on the technical aspects of a structural engineer's work.
