  2. 2. Arch Bridges. The purpose of an arch bridge is to hold heavier loads without collapsing. The materials that consist of this bridge are what looks to be mud and stone.
  3. 3. Arch Bridge. The definition of an arch Bridge is a bridge supported by an arch or a series of arches. In this arch bridge you can see the keystones. A keystone is the central building block at the top of an arch or vault.
  4. 4. Suspension Bridge The definition of a suspension bridge is a bridge having it’s roadway hung from large cables supported between tall towers
  5. 5. Suspension bridge The purpose of the suspension bridge is that the bridge has cables between towers plus vertical suspender cables that carry the weight of the deck below.
  6. 6. Truss Bridge The definition of a truss bridge is a bridge supported by trusses The definition of a truss is a framework of beams that form triangles; for example, your force pulling an elastic.
  7. 7. Truss Bridge The purpose of a truss bridge is to carry heavier loads like big loading trucks or oil trucks. The trusses make it so that the bridge doesn’t collapse under heavier loads.
  8. 8. Beam Bridge The definition of a beam bridge is a bridge supported by a beam or several beams.
  9. 9. Beam Bridge The beam bridge is the most commonly used bridge The purpose of the beam bridge is a simple beam bridge is flat and is supported by two ends.
  10. 10. Solid Structure The purpose of a solid structure is a structure that has little or no space inside, and relies on its own mass to resist the forces that act on it.
  11. 11. Solid Structure The definition of a solid structure is- A solid structure is formed from a solid piece (or solid combination of pieces) of some strong material.
  12. 12. Frame Structure The strength of a frame structure comes from the way the components are joined. Individually, no one component of a frame structure is as strong as the components combined.
  13. 13. Frame structure A frame structure is made up of a rigid arrangement of parts, or structural components, fastened together. An example is your skeleton, which is made up of bones, ligaments, and joints.
  14. 14. Shell Structures The definition of a shell structure is a structure with a solid outer surface (which may be rounded or flat in shape) and a hollow inner area.
  15. 15. Shell Structures Shell structures with a rounded outer surface are usually stronger than those with a flat outer surface, because the curved areas distribute the load around the whole surface.
