    The Structure-based testing techniques (which are also dynamic rather than static) use the internal structure of the software to derive test cases. They are commonly called as 'white-box' or 'glass-box' techniques (implying you can see into the system) since they require knowledge of how the software is implemented, that is, how it works. For example, a structural technique may be concerned with exercising loops in the software.

    Different test cases may be derived to exercise the loop once, twice, and many times. This may be done regardless of the functionality of the software.

    Anymore information on this is welcome!!
