1. Members bend permeatly out of shape - Cracks may appear






2. State of balance where opposing forces are equal






3. A force that pulls apart






4. 1) I 2) T 3) Channel 4) Box 5) Angle






5. A force that pushes togeather






6. Members start to bend due to increased load






7. Opposing force sliding past each other






8. Individual interconnected parts of structure






9. A structure made from more than 1 or more triangles

11. Thicker than can hold more






12. Lighter so that the supports hold less and there is less static load






13. Use materials with a good balance of weight and strength






14. Forces that change






15. Forces that act upon a structure






16. Forces that don't change
