What are frames?

What are frames?

“What are frames, why are they so commonly used, and how can we analyze them?”

 

Frames are some of the most utilized structures in engineering. In Fact, they are so commonly used that they are used in the name Framework. But what exactly are they, why are they so utilized, and how can we analyze them? Well, like I always say, let’s think about it. Frames are fundamentally structures that hold structures together. This allows them to hold multiple disjointed parts together to become continuous, therefore allowing for more complex structures to be built, therefore allowing for complicated urban systems to be developed! Frames can be analyzed by the fact that they provide static resistance to all parts connected to their system, allowing for loads and other members to balance each other out.
