Power Systems & Controls’ Structural Engineering design is the basis for all of PS&C’s shelters and containers. As PS&C builds ballistic reinforced, as well as, forced entry shelters the need for a fully staffed structural engineering staff is a necessity. Our engineers utilize the latest tools and software in conjunction with the FEA data to determine what size and thickness members are needed to complete the mission. Power Systems & Controls has a fully staffed Structural Engineering Department, which has over 100 years of experience working in the power quality and similar fields. Structural engineering is a field of engineering dealing with the analysis and design of structures that support or resist loads. Structural engineers are most commonly involved in the design of buildings and large non-building structures but they can also be involved in the design of machinery or any item where structural integrity affects the item’s function or safety.

Structural Engineering:

  • Evaluate structural systems, products, components, and applications
  • Confirms system’s and components’ capabilities through testing
  • Develop products by studying customer requirements and application
  • Develop manufacturing processes by designing and modifying equipment for building.
  • Assure product quality by designing mechanical testing methods
  • Prepare product reports by collecting, analyzing, and summarizing information and trends
  • Provide engineering information by answering questions and requests
  • Maintain product and company reputation by complying with federal and state regulations
  • Keep equipment operational by following instructions and established procedures
  • Maintain product data base by writing computer programs; entering data
  • Complete projects by training and guiding technicians
  • Maintain professional and technical knowledge through workshops & seminars
