1. Members start to bend due to increased load

2. A twisting force

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

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

5. Forces that don't change

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

7. A force that pushes togeather

8. State of balance where opposing forces are equal

9. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members

10. Individual interconnected parts of structure

11. Forces that act upon a structure

12. (1) Compression (2) Tension

13. Forces that change

14. 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

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

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

17. A force that pulls apart

18. Shorter is stronger

19. Thicker than can hold more

20. Opposing force sliding past each other

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