Structural engineering a specialty within the field of civil engineering focuses on the framework of structures, and on designing those structures to withstand the stresses and pressures of their environment and remain safe, stable and secure throughout their use.
Concrete Structures is well-positioned to provide an integrated service to the construction sector with the manufacture, delivery and erection of concrete products for the construction of commercial and industrial buildings, bridges, reservoirs, culverts, underpasses, and other civil structures.
In modern construction, steel structures are used for almost every type of structure including heavy industrial building, high-rise building, equipment support system, infrastructure, bridge, tower, airport terminal, heavy industrial plant, pipe rack and aluminum curtain wall use in innovation in modern buildings.
Structure Strengthening is the process of addition of new features to older buildings, heritage structures, bridges etc. Structure Strengthening reduces the vulnerability of damage of an existing structure during a near future seismic activity. Retrofitting helps to increase the strength, resistivity and overall lifespan of the structure.
Applications. Masonry has both structural and non-structural applications. Structural applications include walls, columns, beams, foundations, load-bearing arches, and others. On the other hand, masonry is also used in non-structural applications such as fireplaces chimneys and veneer systems.
