The Work of Structural Engineers
As structural engineers, your work is very versatile and can be quite demanding. Structural engineers are usually trained years to understand, predict, and calculate the stability, strength and rigidity of both building structures and nonbuilding structures; develop designs and integrate their designs with that of other designers, as well as supervise construction of projects on site.
The fields structural engineers work in is also varied: some structural engineers work on the design of structures (carrying out the strength calculations and supervising drawings), others specialise in the building of structures, and some work in research.
What Software is Best Suited for Structural Engineers?
In general, working in teams is very common for structural engineers, therefore collaboration and reporting are essential for their work to be effective and productive. SkyCiv’s powerful structural analysis tool not only allows structural engineers to carry out complex modelling work (from individual structural elements of a structure ie beams, columns, and floors of a building; to entire system such as buildings and bridges, tunnels and walls), but also enables great productivity via advanced modelling features, collaboration function, as well as software integration.
