Textbooks and Reference Books on Structural Design

Last Updated on April 17, 2023 by Admin

Structural engineering is a sub-discipline of civil engineering in which structural engineers are trained to design the bones and muscles that create the form and shape of man-made structures. Kindly check below the textbooks and reference books on structural design for your studies, exam, and job interview preparation.


Structural design is the methodical investigation of the stability, strength, and rigidity of structures. The basic objective in structural analysis and design is to design a structure capable of resisting all applied loads without failure during its intended life.
