The Science of Structure—Forces in Balance

Lecture no. 2 from the course: Understanding the World's Greatest Structures

The Science of Structure—Forces in Balance

Taught by Professor Stephen Ressler | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Explore how two types of external forces—loads (forces applied to structures) and reactions (forces developed at supports, in response to applied loads)—act on structures such as Kansas City's Chouteau Bridge. Also, learn how these forces are related to the most important concept in engineering mechanics: equilibrium.
