WHAT DOES GIRDER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

girder

Girder

A girder is a support beam used in construction. Girders often have an I-beam cross section for strength, but may also have a box shape, Z shape or other forms. Girder is the term used to denote the main horizontal support of a structure which supports smaller beams. A girder is commonly used many times in the building of bridges, and planes. In traditional timber framing a girder is called a girt. The Warren type girder combines strength with economy of materials and can therefore be relatively light. Patented in 1848 by its designers James Warren and Willoughby Theobald Monzani, its structure consists of longitudinal members joined only by angled cross-members, forming alternately inverted equilateral triangle-shaped spaces along its length, ensuring that no individual strut, beam, or tie is subject to bending or torsional straining forces, but only to tension or compression. It is an improvement over the Neville truss which uses a spacing configuration of isosceles triangles.

Definition of girder in the English dictionary

The definition of girder in the dictionary is a large beam, esp one made of steel, used in the construction of bridges, buildings, etc. Other definition of girder is the structure composed of tissue providing mechanical support for a stem or leaf.
