This video is all about supports. Which types are available, how they are displayed, what they look like, and much more.
In simple terms, supports are the connections between a structure and a fixed point. Depending on the support type, they prevent certain displacements or rotations of the structure.
We show you the most common types in structural engineering, which movements they allow (the so-called degrees of freedom) and the respective support forces that can occur.
Have fun!
