Learn about the most common types of failures of structural systems and how you can be better prepared to avoid them.

Many in the public think of structural engineering as a complex accounting problem involving tedious calculations of loads and resistances. Many aspiring engineers think of structural design as the application of formulas and code provisions to create prolific structures that are safe and code compliant in their completed state. In reality, good structural engineering involves much more than applied mathematics, and an instant in time design mentality. Good structural engineering also requires an understanding of behavior, 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 design of permanent and temporary systems so that you can be better prepared to avoid them.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to define the most common types of failures of structural systems.
  • You will be able to identify numerous considerations that go into designing structural systems.
  • You will be able to recognize that structural engineering involves much more than identifying loads and resistances.
  • You will be able to review structural engineering design concepts with an educated critical eye.
