bridge

TermDefinition
span Span is the distance between two intermediate supports for a structure, a beam or a bridge.
compression The meaning of compression in engineering is all about forces of compression. A compression force is defined as the force generating by compressing or squeezing the object. ... The two forces applied on an object are shown below.
suspension bridge suspension bridge. n. 1. A bridge having the roadway or footway suspended from cables that are anchored at either end and usually supported at intervals by towers. 2.
dissipate A bridge having the roadway or footway suspended from cables that are anchored at either end and usually supported at intervals by towers.
buckle Buckling happens when a force presses on a slender structure and makes it collapse.
tension Tension. It is defined as the pulling force exerted by the mode of a cable, chain, rope, and so forth. The opposite of compression is called tension; the objects are pulled one dimensionally or three dimensionally.
stable Change in geometry of a structure or structural component under compression – resulting in loss of ability to resist loading is defined as instability in the book. Instability can lead to catastrophic failure.
torsion Torsion occurs when an object, such as a bar with a cylindrical or square cross section (as shown in the figure), is twisted. ...
cantilever Cantilever beam means a rigid beam or bar that is fixed to a support usually a vertical structure or wall and the beam's other end is free. ... Diving board at swimming pool is a perfect example for cantilever beam.
buckling Buckling happens when a force presses on a slender structure and makes it collapse.
cable cable in Electrical Engineering. () Word forms: (regular plural) cables. (Electrical engineering: General) A cable is a conducting wire or wires separated and surrounded by a dielectric substance or insulation.
beam BEAM is a horizontal member which carries load primarily by bending.
rig id A rigid body is defined as a body on which the distance between two points never change force applied on it. Or you may say the body which does not deform under the influence of forces is known as a rigid body.
snapping to make a sudden closing of the jaws
joint a hinged joint between two rods, often a ball and socket joint
transfers Electrical engineering: Computing and control) Transfer is the amount of data that is transferred across a digital interface, not including any extra bits used to encode the data.
pier Pier, in building construction, vertical loadbearing member such as an intermediate support for adjacent ends of two bridge spans. ... Piers for bridges are often installed by the caisson method.
beam bridge Beam bridges , also known as stringer bridges, are the simplest structural forms for bridge spans supported by an abutment or pier at each end. ... The main beams could be I-beams (also known as H-beams), trusses, or box girders.
abutment See more synonyms for abutment on Thesaurus.com. noun. Architecture , Civil Engineering . a masonry mass supporting and receiving the thrust of part of an arch or vault.
truss Planar trusses are typically used in parallel to form roofs and bridges.
torsion the twisting or wrenching of a body
arch bridge An arch bridge is a bridge with abutments at each end shaped as a curved arch.
force Force is an exertion of pressure either focused toward or pulling away from an object,
transfers Transfer is the amount of data that is transferred across a digital interface, not including any extra bits used to encode the data.
