In structural engineering, structural design is an iterative process of applying engineering mechanics and past experience to create a functional, economic, and, most importantly, safe structure for the public to enjoy. Using structural analysis techniques and comforming to design specifications, the design engineer works to create a solution that is to everyone's benefit.

Structural design is also a process that has evolved to its modern refinement through hard lessons learned from various structural failures. Structures are divide in to two major categories, viz rcc framed structure and steel structure. Rcc again can be designed by many methods but two of them are important. One is Working stress method and another is Limit state method. Limit method is widely used for designing of rcc structures.
