Design Codes

A structural engineer will use numerous design codes. These codes are used to ensure that the material in use is safe and will react to outside forces as expected (An example to this is designing ductility into concrete members to ensure that they do not have a brittle failure in seismic? events).

This section will give a brief overview of the various design codes used for each type of material or structure. Codes can be broken up into two main categories (structure codes and material codes) although there will be some overlap between the two.
