New Technology in Structural Engineering

Structural engineering is a time-honored profession and is in vogue since the time Egypt’s pyramids came up. While it’s true that many underlying principles in the industry have stayed steady over the years, avoid latest technological innovations and techniques like self-healing concrete, carbon nanotubes and an advanced modeling and analysis software should be used to spruce up the work.

How curb carbon emissions

The UK construction sector should decarbonize more urgently in line with the national emission reduction targets of 68% by 2030 and 78% by 2035, according to a report published today by the National Engineering Policy Centre. More holistic and efficient building designs, combined with measures like reusing building materials and using non-fossil fuel powered machinery, could help eliminate carbon emissions from building sites, says the report.

Structural engineering can help buildings withstand natural calamities

The future of structural engineering is promising and fascinating. Structural engineering plays a vital role in helping buildings withstand natural disasters and calamities. A new system of concentric plastic rings is experimented with by seismic specialists that are installed beneath the foundations of a building to redirect earthquake forces around the building rendering it invisible to seismic activity.

Wood-Framed Residential Construction

Wood frame construction is one of the most popular methods to build residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Wood frames are very economical and resistant to extreme climatic variations. Wood frames can be used in various styles of buildings and there are no restrictions on architectural possibilities. Wood structural elements should be treated based on the exposure to weather and closeness to the ground.

Wooden bicycle frame explores structural engineering techniques

Wooden bikes are a little impractical. There may be unexpected value in wooden bike frames, which architects can use to understand important prototype designs and structural challenges. The bike frame is composed of birch wood lamellas millimetre sheets glued together into strips that splay out at the points where the crank and pedal are fixed below the seat. The structure’s overall strength is enhanced by the alignment.
