Estructuras: Introducción

Presentación sobre estructuras

A structure is resistant when it is capable of enduring the efforts to wich it is subject.

Normally efforts are a combination of forces, but we can classify them in five types

Types of efforts or stress:

 

Traction Effort: An element is subjected to a traction effort, when the forces acting on it, they try to stretch it. An example would be the cable of a crane.

 

– Compression Effort: An element is subjected to a compressive effort, when the forces acting on it, they tend or try to compress it. Example the legs of a chair.

– Flexing Effort or Bending effort: An element is subjected to a bending stress, when the forces acting on it, they try to bend it. An example it’s the board of a table.

– Torsion Effort: An element is subjected to a torsion effort, when the forces acting on it, they try to twist it. Example: a key opening a lock.


– Cutting Effort or Sliding Effort: An element is subjected to a cutting effort, when the forces acting on it, they try to cut it. Example: a scissor.
