Structual components

Hi all,

I am having a debate with a colleague on what several structural components are and how they are described, we are differing on opinion!


For the roof image, I believe the arrow is describing a 'Strut' component, however, could it be a tie rod or truss?

For the bench image, I believe the arrow is describing 'pinned and pinned' however, could it be built in and free?

Can someone please clarify.

Thank you.

Is the "strut" in the first image in compression?

Hi Skipjack,

It is difficult to tell to be honest.

I was swaying to possibly a tie rod/cable that main carries the axial tensile load?

The second image which was too small to see (apologies)

I believe it is built in - built in or built in and simply supported.

What do you think?
