Structural engineering is most often associated with civil engineering and applied to the construction of various building and structures. The planning, design, and analysis of structures, including parking lots, bridges, and buildings, are all the responsibility of structural engineers. Structural engineers deal with the safety and liability issues involved with each design.
Whether you use wood, steel or concrete, each structural project must be built with safety in mind. Earthquake prevention, emergency preparedness, code compliance, and construction building codes must all be implemented in each structure, from the initial planning phases to the finished construction. These safety measures are so important, in fact, that many structural engineers specialize in the safety of foundations, failure analysis, damage assessment, and monitoring of both residential and commercial structures so as to prevent damage or accidents from occurring, as well as finding the cause of such accidents and errors if they have already occurred.
Each structural engineer may have more experience with certain types of structures, including office buildings, schools, residential architecture, commercial construction, shopping centers, hospitals, towers, condominiums, and multifamily housing. There are also structural engineers with jobs centering on evaluating existing damage and determining the work required for repairing each structure. Structural engineering expert witnesses should be well-versed in all of these subjects.
A structural engineering expert witness might be required for a lawsuit, especially for liability or construction defects cases.
