Construction Failures - Why Did It Break?

Understand what good structural engineering involves and avoid the common problems that can develop.

Many in the public think of structural engineering as a complex accounting problem involving tedious calculations of loads and stresses. In reality, good structural engineering involves much more than applied mathematics. Good structural engineering also requires an understanding of the proposed and potential uses of buildings being designed or renovated, construction processes, material performance in different environments, and coordination with other design disciplines. You will learn about common problems that can develop in structural designs so that you can be better prepared to avoid them.
