Any engineering structure should satisfy the functional and structural, have a sufficient degree of performance, a reasonable cost and should be aesthetically attractive. The purpose of structural analysis and design is to enable the designer to design the structure with adequate strength, stiffness and stability. The general procedure is as follows.

  1. Based on space requirements and shape, suitable structural frame works are selected.
  2. Based on preliminary analysis and experience approximate dimensions of various structural members are fixed.
  3. Detailed analysis is performed to determine the bending moments, shear force, axial forces etc at the required section.
  4. Using the result of analysis the various members are designed ensuring adequate factor of safety(FS).
