Structural Engineering Explained
Structural engineering is a subfield of civil engineering that focuses on the design and construction of the basic skeletal structures and load-bearing elements of buildings. Structural engineers use their knowledge of the strengths and properties of materials, as well as principles of mathematics and physics, to ensure the safety and stability of structures.
In structural engineering, complex structures are broken down into their individual components and assessed through a bottom-up approach. This involves studying the behaviour and functionality of each structural member and determining the material and geometrical requirements that will ensure their optimal performance.
Some of the key tasks that a structural engineer may perform include:
- Assessing plans, reports, and site conditions and providing reports when necessary
Evaluating geographical, topographical, environmental, and traffic patterns to identify potential issues a project may face
- Providing structural designs based on mathematical calculations for remedial rectifications
- Providing estimates for the amount and cost of materials needed for a remedial project
- Supervising remedial construction to ensure it is being carried out properly
- Analysing architectural plans, maps, reports, and topographical and geological data.
When to Engage the Services of a Commercial or Residential Structural Engineer
Structural engineers have specialist knowledge about planning, design, assessment, construction, maintenance, and renewal of load-resisting elements and structures.
In general, any changes to the structure of a property call for a structural engineer’s expertise. They will ensure that the structural integrity of the building and its load-bearing capacity is not compromised and that it is safe and stable to use.
You’ll also need to enlist the help of specialist structural engineers if your building shows signs of deterioration, erosion, etc. Here, they’ll gauge the damage depth and ensure your property is not dangerous to its residents or the general public. These experts can also be hired to design repair techniques and plan to restore the strength of the building.
Inspection, reporting, and certifications also necessitate a structural engineer’s services. You may require them for providing building defect reports to gauge the condition of the building you own, or you may need Expert Witness Reports and Expert Witness Reports in Response if you’re stuck in a property-related conflict in NCAT or court. Scope of Work Reports, Tender documentation, Declared Designs, and Specification Reports all fall under the expertise of structural engineers.
