Description

In construction engineering, a distinction is made between beams and arches. An arch is a
statically indeterminate supported structure with a curved axis and two fixed supports or
clamp fixings. The supports of an arch (such as a double-articulated arch) absorb forces
vertically and horizontally. The ends of the arch in the supports do not move. This produces
the static arching effect of the system. In mechanical engineering, crane hooks and chain links
are typical examples of a curved beam. The beam under test is loaded with weights. Dial
gauges record its horizontal and vertical deformations.
