Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Imagine forces in the xdirection (i.e. lateral force). Which would be able to support this better? dw:1436916709996:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3For the rectangular structure, any lateral support is provided by the joints. In the triangular structure, this support is provided by the joints but also by the diagonal segments. I have drawn arrow to show some of the vector forces.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How do you know if something has lateral support or not?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Resolve forces into the x and y direction. These forces need to be transmitted from the base to the upper supports. No xforces can be supported by the segments in the rectangular structure.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I'm not sure what properties you are learning. Geometrically, a triangle is is a more \(stable\) structure.
