1. Forces that act upon a structure






2. Forces that don't change






3. 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






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






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






6. Forces that change






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






8. A force that pulls apart






9. Individual interconnected parts of structure






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






11. A force that pushes togeather






12. (1) Compression (2) Tension






13. Thicker than can hold more






14. A twisting force






15. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members






16. State of balance where opposing forces are equal






17. Opposing force sliding past each other






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






19. Members start to bend due to increased load






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






21. Shorter is stronger
