A structural member subjected to an axial compressive force is

  1. Beam
  2. Strut
  3. Tie
  4. Frame

Answer: B. Strut

A structural member subjected to an axial compressive force is strut.

Solution

Strut is a structural member which is subjected to an axial compressive force only. A strut may be horizontal, vertical or inclined.

Beam is a structural member which is primarily subjected to transverse load(perpendicular to longitudinal axis). It resists bending moment and shear force.

Frame resists bending moment , shear force and axial loading.

Tie is a structural member which is subjected to only tensile force.

Hence, a structural member subjected to an axial compressive force is strut.
