Beams and cables


Previous discussion
determining external forces acting on a structure
determining forces which hold together the various members of a
structure
Current discussion
Determining the internal forces (i.e., tension/compression, shear, and
bending) which hold together the various parts of a given member.
Beams and cables
Beams - usually long, straight, prismatic members designed to support
loads applied at various points along the member
Cables - flexible members capable of withstanding only tension,
designed to support concentrated or distributed loads
