STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS
In any type of construction/building, one must start with the grass root; which is foundation/footing, therefore, letâ€™s start by defining what structural analysis is all about.

First of all, what is structure? A structure refers to a system of connected parts used to support a load. Important examples related to civil engineering include Building, Bridges and Towers; and in other branches of engineering, ship and aircraft frames, tanks pressure vessels, mechanical system, and electrical supporting structure are important. The determination of internal action and deformation is called structural analysis OR the determination of response of the structure to loads.

The process of determination can be by:
*   Structural Analysis Software
*   Manual manipulations and calculations.

TYPES OF STRUCTURES
We have so many types of structure, which includes:

*   Beams
*   Columns
*   Trusses
*   Cables and Arches
*   Frames
*   Rods

BEAMS
Beam is flexure member of the structure. It is subjected to transverse loading such as vertical loads, and gravity loads. These loads create and bending within the beam.

COLUMNS
A long vertical member mostly subjected to compressive loads is called Column.

TRUSS (Pin connected joints)

A type of structure formed by members in triangular form, the resulting figure is called a truss. In truss joints are pin connected and loads are applied at joints, no shear force & bending moment are produces. Only axial compression and axial tension is to be determined while analyzing a truss.
