Introduction to Structure
A structure can be defined as the arrangement of different elements, interconnected in such a way that they can resist the effects of different types of loadings they are designed for. In simple terms, structure is the system of connected parts to support a load (R.C. Hibbeler) Buildings, ships, bridges, aircraft, spaceships, etc. are all examples of structure.
