1. Forces that act upon a structure

2. Shorter is stronger

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

4. Thicker than can hold more

5. A force that pulls apart

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

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

8. 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

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

10. Members start to bend due to increased load

11. A twisting force

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

13. Opposing force sliding past each other

14. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members

15. (1) Compression (2) Tension

16. State of balance where opposing forces are equal

17. A force that pushes togeather

18. Forces that don't change

19. Forces that change

20. Individual interconnected parts of structure

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