Load transmission, Civil Engineering

• The transmission of load through a structure can be complex but in any particular case

           - The applied load can usually be classified into 4 types

               •Axial

               • Shear

               • Bending

               •Torsion

           - The individual members of the structure can be examined as to their ability to carry the share of the loads
