Dynamic vs Static Load → Dynamic load is the permanent load of the structure. The weight of the structure alone. Static load is the amounts of weight being added or subtracted to the structure. Like cars going on and off of a bridge.
Compression → act of twisting; stress due to twisting forces exerted on a body
Column → a tall cylindrical vertical upright and used to support a structure
Cable Stay Bridge → Wall that bears a load resting upon it by conducting its weight to a foundation structure.
Square Set Timbering → Wall that bears a load resting upon it by conducting its weight to a foundation structure.
