Summary
An arch is one of the oldest and the strongest structures to be used in construction activities since thousands of years. Numerous structures including some of the most famous temples, libraries, museums have an arch as an integral part that results in an elegance that is unmatched. The video discusses the way in which the arch derives its strength with the help of a model. The strength of an arch is due to the transfer of force down the arch to the base. There are two types of forces acting upon the arch – the vertical force or compression that pushes down on a base and the horizontal or tension that pulls on an arch. The structure that resists the horizontal force is known as a buttress. A detailed knowledge about these forces is extremely essential for the use of arches in architecture.
