services.  A licensed ?Professional Engineer? can perform provide
structural engineering services, as long as it is within the engineers

In response to dadof5angels-ga comment:

I perform structural designs mostly for residential and small
commercial construction.  I have been practicing in these areas for
several years.  Now I am looking at starting a small business
part-time in addition to my full-time position in anticipation of it
in the future of replacing my current full-time employment.
There is no answer at this time.

How about using a structural engineering term such as "Shear Strength"
or "S-Max" (as in maximum stress).

You might call the company "Amphion". 

Amphion was said to have been the son of mythical god Zeus and the
nymph Antiope and as legend has it, with the help of his twin brother
Zethus, built the ancient walls of Thebes by playing his lyre and
charming the gargantuan stones to move into place.

How's that?

A structural engineer?s opinion, for what it?s worth:

In general, it?s probably a bad idea to perform structural engineering
services if you are legally prohibited from calling yourselves
structural engineers.  If you?re telling (or implying to) clients you
can do structural engineering, simply avoiding the term ?structural
engineers? in the company name is not going to save you when your
state?s board of professional engineers (or, for non-gringos, your
province?s or country?s equivalent) comes knocking on your door.

Yeah, well, (mumble, mumble) [insert pathetic excuse here] *inaudible*?

Sorry, I was so sure that I had correctly read between the lines (At a
previous employer, we competed with a lot of non-engineer engineers,
so I?m prickly) that I completely forgot how things work in some
states.  It isn?t like that in the 4 states I?ve worked in; if you?ve
got a PE, you can call yourself a ?structural engineer? if that?s your
area of expertise, end of story.  But I know better.

Boy, am I glad I had second thoughts about the even-snottier comment I
was originally going to post.

So I assume ?Engineering? in the name is fine.  None of these are any
good, but I figured I should at least give it a try as penance.  How

Good luck.
