Glossary Term

Structural engineering is an integral part of technical planning and primarily includes the structural analysis, design, and calculations of a structure.
The goal of structural engineering is to determine the required load-bearing capacity and serviceability of a building structure while bringing the intended service life into conformity with the economic and aesthetic requirements. To implement this task, the structural analysis applies, which is based on the rules of structural engineering. In exceptional cases, the tests serve as proof of feasibility.
