They consists generally of triangular sub-element and are constructed and supported so as to prevent any motion. Frames -Definition Frames -Definition Frames are structures that always contain at least one member acted on by forces at three or more points. Frames are constructed and supported so as to prevent any motion. Frame like structures that are not fully constrained are called machines or mechanisms. Truss Truss Planar Trusses - lie in a single plane and all applied loads must lie in the same plane. Truss Truss Space Trusses - are structures that are not contained in a single plane and/or are loaded out of the plane of the structure. Truss...
