Structural & Building Engineering

Structural & Building Engineering is focussing on (large) civil infrastructure from an engineering point of view. How do new materials really behave in large structures, how can parts be fitted together, what does fatigue with strength of existing infrastructure, what is life expectancy of existing structure? Can we build structures using materials like glass. What can we do with a sustainable material like timber or timber fibres. In this challenging field the section Structural and Building Engineering is involved.
