Welcome to the Kortext section of structural engineering. The ebooks related to this area of civil engineering are relevant to those who study and work in a multitude of structural engineering specialisms.
In order to find out if this is the right section for you, we have broken down some aspects of the field below.
What does a structural engineer do?
A structural engineer looks at whether a building can withstand the strains and loads needed, ensuring safe construction. They work with architects and surveyors and usually deal with modern buildings and the renovation of older buildings, and design the appropriate systems and structures needed.
It is possible to specialise in a number of areas, such as forensic experts (looking at why structures fail), earthquake engineering, or aerospace engineering.
Structural engineers need to understand the qualities of specific materials and their benefits and drawbacks for specific structures, based on mathematic principles.
As regulations and laws change, structural engineers must work with new technologies and techniques to stay in line with current trends and eco-friendly designs.
For this reason, structural engineers may be interested in ebooks on topics such as:
Structural engineer calculations
Design of Structural Elements and structural cross sections
The monitoring of bridges and their design
