This is a really big area but mainly concentrated on bridges and buildings. For the moment, some background information on how structural engineers can contribute to the aesthetics of buildings and bridges - an area usually presumed to be the dominion of the architect - can be got from a relevant set of lecture notes for architecture students: The lecture notes section has much more detailed technical information about different aspects of structural engineering. For more general information, the Institution of Structural Engineers' website has some good information starting here. Images from the structural design of Century Buildings, Jersey

  • im interested by engineering structures and i want my future carrier to be like this, thanks.

  • Thanks for all your notes. They are highly insightful. Just wanted to ask whether you have any material on bridges since that is your speciality. I’m particularly interested in an example showing how, by using influence surfaces (for instance Adolf Pucher Charts), one can determine the moments and shear for reinforced concrete bridge deck. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated.
