The functions of civil engineers fall into three categories:1. before construction (feasibility studies, site investigations, and design)2. during construction (dealing with clients, consulting engineers, and contractors)3. after construction ( maintenance)Any major civil engineering project starts with a feasibility study to access both financial and engineering aspects. During the feasibility study a preliminary site investigation is carried out. Once a scheme has been approved, a more extensive investigation is usually necessary to evaluate the load-bearing qualities and stability of the ground. This field is called soil mechanics. The design of engineering works may require the application of principles of hydraulics, thermodynamics and nuclear physics. During the construction phase, a consulting engineer is often employed to be responsible for design of the works, supplying
