INTRODUCTION TO THESYSTEM
The system of straight linearmembers in which theredirection of forces iseffected by multi-directional splitting of forcesinto vectors alongcompressive and tensileelements.
VECTOR :value describingmagnitude of load anddirection of its application.
The main unit is a triangle.
THE DISTRIBUTION OF LOAD BY SPLITTING IT UPAT JUNCTIONS THAT ARE MUCH MORE CAPABLEOF BEARING LOAD THAN STRAIGHT CROSSSECTIONS OF MATERIALS.THIS IS THE PRINCIPAL THAT VECTORS USETHOROUGHLY.
