Glossary

Tie



A member designed to stretch under load. To a certain extent the cross-section shape is unimportant, unlike the strut, where the section affects the carrying capacity of the member. The end connections aim to ensure even distribution across the section for as much of the length as possible. Ties need not always be rigid members. A flexible connector such as cable or chain may be used as a tie.
