Structural design

In civil engineering Structural design is a reiterative process of applying engineering mechanics and past experience to create a functional, economic and, most importantly, safe structure for the public to enjoy. Using structural analysis[?] techniques and comforming to design specifications[?] the design engineer works to create a solution that is to everyone's benefit.

Sadly, structural design is also a process that has evolved to its modern refinement through hard lessons. See structural collapse[?], serviceability and serviceability failure[?].
