Tensile and Compressive Force:

Tensile Forces

A force, that pulls the body, is called as tensile force. Here member AB is tension member carrying tensile force P. As shown in the figure given below.

Compressive Force

A force, which pushes the body, is called as compressive force shown in figure given beow
