Planar Truss

**A strong rope, usually made of metal, designed to have
**

great tensile strength and to be used in structures.

The geometric center of an area.

A body subjected to a push.

A force system where all of the forces are applied at a

common point on the body or having their lines of action

with a common intersection point.

A surface or shape exposed by making a straight cut

through something at right angles to the axis.

The direction of a vector is defined by the angle between a

reference axis and the arrow’s line of direction.

A support that prevents translation and rotation in a beam.

A broad ridge or pair of ridges projecting at a right angle

from the edge of a structural shape in order to strengthen or

stiffen it.

A diagram used to isolate a body from its environment,

showing all external forces acting upon it.

A plate or bracket for strengthening an angle in framework.

The connection points of members of a truss.

The absolute value of a number.

Slender straight pieces of a truss connected by joints.

A method of analysis of trusses which constructs free body

diagrams of each joint and determines the forces acting in

that joint by considering equilibrium of the joint pin.

The turning effect of a force about a point equal to the

magnitude of the force times the perpendicular distance

from the point to the line of action from the force.

A mathematical property of a cross section that is

concerned with a surface area and how that area is

distributed about a centroidal axis.

Every body or particle continues at a state of rest or uniform

motion in a straight line, unless it is compelled to change

that state by forces acting upon it.

The change of motion of the body is proportional to the net

force imposed on the body and is in the direction of the net

force.

If one body exerts a force on a second body, then the

second body exerts a force on the first body which is equal

in magnitude, opposite in direction, and collinear.

A support that prevents translation in any direction.

A truss that lies in a single plane often used to support roofs

and bridges.

Vector Quantity

**The resultant of a system of force is the vector sum of all
**

forces.

A support that only prevents a beam from translating in one

direction.

A physical quantity that has magnitude only.

The sense of a vector is the direction of the vector relative

to its path and indicated by the location of the arrow.

A truss composed of triangles, which will retain its shape

even when removed from supports.

A condition where there are no net external forces acting

upon a particle or rigid body and the body remains at rest or

continues at a constant velocity.

A structure or body which is over-constrained such that

there are more unknown supports than there are equations

of static equilibrium.

Something made up of interdependent parts in a definite

pattern of organization, such as trusses, frames, or

machines.

A body subjected to a pull.

A quantity that has both a magnitude and direction.
