1. Forces that change






2. Shorter is stronger






3. Forces that don't change






4. A force that pushes togeather






5. Members start to bend due to increased load






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






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






8. Thicker than can hold more






9. Opposing force sliding past each other






10. A force that pulls apart






11. (1) Compression (2) Tension






12. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members






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






14. State of balance where opposing forces are equal






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






16. A twisting force






17. Forces that act upon a structure






18. 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






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






20. Individual interconnected parts of structure






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