Structural engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with the analysis and design of various structural systems. Although this branch of engineering has influence on various other disciplines like mechanical or aeronautical engineering, etc., it is more commonly identified with civil engineering. Structural engineering deals with conception, design, and construction of the structural systems that are needed in support of human civil engineering

"Structural engineering is the art of molding materials we don't wholly understand, into shapes we can't fully analyze, so as to withstand forces we can't really assess, in such a way that the community at large has no reason to suspect the extent of our ignorance." ...James E. Amrhein - Masonry Institute of America (Retired) LQEngineer ( talk ) 03:58, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

It deals with analyzing a particular structural system. A structural system may vary from simple systems (like beams, columns, slabs, etc.) to more complex systems (like frames, bridges, piers, foundations, retaining walls, etc.). The objective behind analysis is to estimate or find resultant stresses (or forces) so that these elements can be designed to withstand the load that comes over it.

Structural engineering — a specialty within the field of civil engineering — focuses on the framework of structures, and on designing those structures to withstand the stresses and pressures of their environment and remain safe, stable and secure throughout their use. In other words, structural engineers make sure that buildings don't fall down and bridges don't collapse. 

Structural engineering is among the oldest types of engineering, dating back to the first instance of tree branches being lashed together with vines to make a shelter. Throughout recorded history, people have been designing and building increasingly larger and more sophisticated structures, from primitive huts to the International Space Station . 

The names of the earliest practitioners of structural engineering are lost to antiquity. We will never know who designed the Hanging Gardens of Babylon , the Parthenon  or the aqueducts of the Roman Empire. Some of the latter-day practitioners in this field are known, although often not as well as the structures they designed. Prominent structural engineers include Gustave Eiffel ( Eiffel Tower , Statue of Liberty) and Eero Saarinen ( Gateway Arch ). However, most designs for famous modern structures such as the Large Hadron Collider and the James Webb Space Telescope are attributed to companies and government organizations.

Standard ASCE/SEI 7-16 provides requirements for general structural design and includes means for determining various loads and their combinations, which are suitable for inclusion in building codes and other documents.

Michael O'Rourke provides a detailed and authoritative interpretation of the snow load provisions of Standard ASCE/SEI 7-16.

T. Eric Stafford and other experts summarize the major changes to the minimum design load provisions of ASCE 7-16, including updates to rain, snow, seismic, and wind loads, plus the new tsunami guidelines.
