Unformatted text preview: The dynamic load of the snow causes structural engineering to be applied here. http://www.london.gov.uk/lhp/images/vehicles.jpg Vehicles impose dynamic loads on the surfaces that they are being run on. The speed, position, and acceleration of the cars in traffic are also another situation where dynamics can be applied to vehicles. Transportation engineering and structural engineering would be the two used here. http://www.burjdubaiskyscraper.com/2006/diagram/world-tallest-skyscrapers.jpg Skyscrapers are buildings that seem to “scrape” the sky. The wind imposes a dynamic load on these skyscrapers because they are so tall. In most of these buildings if you stand near the top you can feel the building sway. It can be considered that construction engineering uses the dynamics of the wind in their calculations....
