In structural engineering, a structure is a body or combination of pieces of rigid bodies in space that form a fitness system for supporting loads and resisting moments. The effects of loads and moments on structures are determined through structural analysis. A steel structure is composed of structural members that are made of steel, usually with standard cross-sectional profiles and standards of chemical composition and mechanical properties. The depth of steel beams used in the construction of bridges is usually governed by the maximum moment, and the cross section is then verified for shear strength near supports and lateral torsional buckling (by determining the distance between transverse members connecting adjacent beams). Steel column members must be verified as adequate to prevent buckling after axial and moment requirements are met.
Steel Detailing is the process of translating design/engineering/contract drawings to shop drawings. This process involves detailing of all steel parts for their interconnectivity & assembly so as to help the fabricator easy and speedy fabrication of steel parts in shop.
The steel fabrication shop requires drawings for every piece of steel used on a structure. Fabrication drawings will show how each piece of steel would be placed and connected by giving an identification mark. It will depict how will bolts and welds placed and defined.
To say it in simple words everything is created on paper/computer for the safe and perfect erection before it is fabricated.
The job of steel detailer is to convert engineering drawings and documents into erection drawings and detailed fabrication drawings with the help of different software tools according to the client requirements.

3D Modelling Application
3D modeling is the process of developing a mathematical representation of any surface of an object (either inanimate or living) in three dimensions via specialized software. The product is called a 3D model. Someone who works with 3D models may be referred to as a 3D artist. It can be displayed as a two-dimensional image through a process called 3D rendering or used in a computer simulation of physical phenomena. The model can also be physically created using 3D printing devices. 3D models are widely used anywhere in 3D graphics and CAD. Their use predates the widespread use of 3D graphics on personal computers. Many computer games used pre-rendered images of 3D models as sprites before computers could render them in real-time. The designer can then see the model in various directions and views, this can help the designer see if the object is created as intended to compared to their original vision. Seeing the design this way can help the designer/company figure out changes or improvements needed to the product.
Tanks Design & Detailing
The first comprehensive steel tanks book published in more than a decade. Developed by members of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) General Steel Tank Committee, Steel Water Storage Tanks: Design, Construction, Maintenance, and Repair is the most authoritative source of industry information available. This in-depth reference describes the use of steel tanks for potable water storage and includes details on tank sizes, capabilities, styles, construction, appurtenances, site selection, design, operation, maintenance, rehabilitation, inspection, and security. Complete coverage of: Tank history, typical configurations, locating, sizing, and selecting; Selecting and specifying appurtenances; Controlling corrosion; Contractual considerations; Foundations; Construction of welded-steel water-storage tanks; Construction of bolted-steel water-storage tanks; Operation; Inspecting new-tank construction; Maintenance, inspection, and repair; Potable water security.
