2. Engineering Structure

1. “In engineering and architecture, a structure is a body or assemblage of bodies in space to form a system capable of supporting loads. Physical structures include man-made and natural arrangements. Buildings, aircraft, soap films, skeletons, anthills, beaver dams and salt domes are all examples of physical structures. The effects of loads on physical structures are determined through structural analysis. Structural engineering refers to engineering of physical structures.

Built structures are a subset of physical structures resulting from construction. These are divided into buildings and nonbuilding structures, and make up the infrastructure of a human society. Built structures are composed of structural elements such as columns, beams and trusses. Built structures are broadly divided by their varying design approaches and standards, into categories including Building structures, Architectural structures, Civil engineering structures and Mechanical structures.

1. Introduction

Structure refers to something which can be identified by some measurements to be separate from its environment by a shape and boundary.  A structure is usually formed by smaller units and so on.  A fundamental particle is one which consist of a continuous material without identifiable substructure.  In general, structure also refers to the special arrangement of units within the structure making up the larger structure.  Sizes range from subatomic particle to the structure of the universe.  (From 10-30 to 10+30 m)(RDC 3/10/2016)
