Questions that fall into the problem domain of civil engineering or one of its sub-disciplines. Questions about buildings or other structures could usually use the "structural-engineering" tag also.
The civil engineering tag covers the design, construction and maintenance of the built environment; including bridges, infrastructure and tall structures.
Civil engineering is typically involved when projects are large in scale or affect a large area of land.
Use this tag when someone who has trained as a civil engineer is likely to be able to answer/ask your question. As with most disciplines, civil engineering encompasses a lot of specialisms and it may be necessary to further sub-categorize your question using additional tags.
Civil Engineering Sub-disciplines
Civil engineering is a very broad field. If your question is specific to any of the following disciplines, consider using the more specific tag instead of or in addition to this one:
- Geotechnical Engineering
- Structural Engineering
- Transportation Engineering
- Environmental Engineering
- Water Resources Engineering
Engineering projects are often multi- and inter-disciplinary and the above list is not exhaustive.
