Structural – The term structural system or structural frame in structural engineering refers to load-resisting sub-system of a structure. The structural system transfers loads through interconnected structural components or members. A structural system designed inadequately without factoring in all the various dead and live loads can result in building failure ultimately leading to legal liability, financial loss and possible safety concerns.
