Sample text

Assume a weight W of 1000; acting at a distance of 3 in. from the fulcrum F and a person lifting up on the lever at a distance 30 in. from the fulcrum. ). Thus, P × 30 in. = 1000 lb × 3 in. P= 1000 lb × 3 in. = 100 lb 30 in. If the force distance is 10 times the weight distance, the force is onetenth the weight, and the lever is said to provide a mechanical advantage of 10. This holds true for other ratios of distances also. 2 Force required to lift or to move a load by means of levers. Basic Machines If the crowbar is used, however, as shown in Fig.

Also essential is a basic knowledge about the strength of materials. 1 Mechanical Laws Machinery offers a mechanical advantage in moving loads. The simple machines, from which every machine is constructed, include: • Inclined plane—An inclined plane requires less force to move a load, but the distance traveled is greater. The greater the distance over which the force must be applied, however, the smaller the force required to do the work with the load. Ramp—inclined plane; friction is a problem in using a ramp to move heavy objects; if an incline is very steep, steps cut into the incline make it easier to use Wedge—two back-to-back inclined planes • Lever—A bar that turns on a point called a fulcrum.

These local jurisdictions may write their own codes or may legally adopt the state promulgated building code, or the International Building Code. Codes Guide Since 1967, the National Conference of States on Building Codes and Standards (NCSBCS) has coordinated state and local building codes. The organization consists of chief building regulatory officials of the states, local code officials from across the nation, federal officials, and other organizations and professionals interested in the need to strengthen building codes and public safety.
