1. Forces that act upon a structure






2. A force that pushes togeather






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






4. (1) Compression (2) Tension






5. Opposing force sliding past each other






6. Members start to bend due to increased load






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






8. A force that pulls apart






9. Individual interconnected parts of structure






10. Pushing down in 1 spot at the middle of the bridge is more stressful to the structurethan if the same force is spread out. One heavy trucj in the middle of a bridge has more effect than several cars that are spread out but total the same weight






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






12. State of balance where opposing forces are equal






13. A twisting force






14. Forces that change






15. Forces that don't change






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






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






18. Shorter is stronger






19. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members






20. Thicker than can hold more






21. The only figure that can not change shape without shortening or lengthing a side.
