Description

A structural member, usually horizontal, with a main function to carry loads cross-ways to its longitudinal axis. These loads usually result in bending of the beam member. Examples of beams are simple, continuous, and cantilever. Beam
This is a structural member whose main function is to carry loads both parallel and transverse to the longitudinal axis. Beam-Column
This refers to the part of a member that extends freely over a beam, which is not supported at its end. Cantilever
It is additional dead loads (not the weight of people and not the weight of the building itself), such as plumbing, duct work, ceilings, and other components of the structure. Collateral Load
It is a main vertical member that carries axial loads from the main roof beams or girders to the foundation parallel to its longitudinal axis. Column
It is the term given to a structural system describing the transfer of loads and stresses from member to member as if there were no connections. Continuity
It is the rate of decay of amplitude for floor vibrations. Damping
describes the loads from the weight of the permanent components of the structure. Dead Load
is the displacement of a structural member or system under a load. Deflection
This type of load varies over time. Dynamic Load
