Plane Truss and Geometric stability and static determinacy of trusses

Truss A truss is an articulated structure composed of straight members arranged and connected in such a way that they transmit primarily axial force. If all the members lie in one plane it is called a plane truss. A three-dimensional truss is called a space truss.  PLANE TRUSS                                                                        The basic form of a truss is […]

ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF A STRUCTURE

ANALYSIS AND DESIGN In a broad sense, the analysis and design of a structure consists of two parts: The first part deals with the determination of forces at any point or member of the given structure. The second part deals with the selection analysis and design of a structure suitable sections to resist these forces […]

Forms of structure(beam,trusses arch and frames) in structure analysis

FORMS OF STRUCTURES Any civil engineering structure is conceived keeping in mind its intended use, the materials available, cost and aesthetic considerations. The struc­tural analyst encounters a great variety of structures and these are briefly reviewed here. One of the simplest structures is a, simply supported beam, supported on a pin at one end’ and […]

SI Units for Structural Engineers

SI Units for Structural Engineers The international system of units SI (System Internationale units) Units for Structural Engineers, com­monly called SI, is being adopted allover the world as a uniform meas­urement system. While the complete transition from customary units to the SI system may take years, the use of SI (System Internationale units) Units for Structural […]
