Effective Structural Engineering in the UAE

Structural engineering plays a major role in building a safe and sturdy structure that anyone can use for a long time. All man-made buildings and infrastructure in the UAE are designed with the help of Structural consultants in Dubai to obtain the structural standards of a certain project. As the UAE economy keeps on progressing, the society also develops through the construction of roads, bridges, residential and commercial buildings, and skyscrapers. These structures are built with stability to withstand any uncertainties and prevent them from collapsing. Structural consultants in Dubai are fully equipped with the knowledge, experience, and technologies to further innovate solutions for the enhancement of the engineering industry in the UAE.

Structural Engineering in Dubai

What is Structural Engineering?

Structural engineering is a specialty in civil engineering that covers the study and implementation of physical laws and empirical knowledge to effectively design a substantial ‘bones and muscles’ of a structure. It involves the understanding and calculation of the stability, strength, rigidity, and accurately estimate the function of different geometries and materials used in structures to resist loads and stresses on man-made structures. These structural engineering fundamentals were used even with the ancient building structures, developed to build innovative and essential structures today and in the future. Structural engineers are responsible for composing creative and efficient use of budget, structural elements, and materials to achieve imposed goals.

What do Structural Engineers do?

Structural engineers are professionals who possess the skills and knowledge of assuring that a structure is safe, stable, and ready for human occupancy. They accumulated the technical knowledge of different types of construction materials specifications in different geometries and design structures, which are applied to structural design and analysis. Structures must resist the strains and stresses of the environment such as gravity loads, storms, earthquakes, and other catastrophes. In order to provide a safe, constructible, economical solution, and to complete a project successfully, structural consultants in Dubai coordinate and apply actual synthesis to the project’s structural design. And through effective communication with clients and other teams involved in the project results understanding of the function of the project. 

3 Stages of Structural Design Process

Load Calculation
Structural engineers use components of safety in their design to reckon oversights in load assumptions and unexpected errors in construction material or process. Standards and building codes can be used to estimate the load of the building, and other factors like wind, storm, and earthquake loads depending on the function of the structures.

Structural Analysis
When the load calculation is all set, the structural analysis takes on to discern the load probability and impact on every single element of the building or infrastructure. Usage of new technology like engineering software is used to analyze various structures, but it is also necessary to study the reliability of the results from the software with the main principal knowledge and basic structural analysis fundamentals.

When it comes to designing buildings and infrastructure that we use daily, the safety of the public is the main priority, avoiding the consequences of a structure to catastrophically collapse. 
Structural elements including the floor system, vertical supports, foundations, and other parts of the structure can be designed using the calculated loads and stresses through engineering software analysis.
