Non-linguistic expressions such as drawings and figures are clearly also within the domain of hermeneutical application. Hermeneutics becomes critical to the communication of abstractions in structural design because misinterpretation of design intent causes serious problems. It is in everyone's best interest when all project participants aim to understand the original design intent. Hermeneutical principles exist in order to overcome the barriers to communication that exist in the transfer of ideas.

The use of patterns allows one to reuse the methods and understand why one certain procedure is more or less useful in different situations. 7 Summary What I have done in this chapter: 1. Denned phases in the life of a structure by describing dominant activities in each distinct phase. 2. Explained the importance of understanding performance in all phases. 3. Highlighted applications and research related to each phase. 27 Chapter 3 Information in structural design This chapter defines terms for categories of information that express structural engineering design.

The concept of model uncertainty in structural engineering (Ditlevsen, 1982) is related to level 2 ambiguity since both relate to missing or neglected relevant variables. These two levels of ambiguity function differently in a design situation. When someone is "figuring out a problem" it usually involves starting with a level 2 ambiguity and working towards a level 1 ambiguity. Then, once that is determined, the solution method can be chosen and the ambiguity can be resolved at the proper level of precision, detail, and stability.
