From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Structure is a fundamental and sometimes intangible notion covering the recognition, observation, nature, and stability of patterns and relationships of entities. .From a child's verbal description of a snowflake, to the detailed scientific analysis of the properties of magnetic fields, the concept of structure is an essential foundation of nearly every mode of inquiry and discovery in science, philosophy, and art.^ Lecture: 3.00 College: Arts & Sciences Department: Physics PHY 112 - Physical Science Survey Credits: 3.00 A broad descriptive course in Physical Science.

A structure defines what a system is made of. It is a configuration of items. It is a collection of inter-related components or services. .The structure may be a hierarchy (a cascade of one-to-many relationships) or a network featuring many-to-many relationships.^ One of the many subliminal messages suggested by the above exposition is that, just as the sanctuary structure resembles a human body, so the human body should become a sanctuary, treated and respected as such.

Chemical structure

.Chemistry is the science treating matter at the atomic to macromolecular scale, the reactions, transformations and aggregations of matter, as well as accompanying energy and entropy changes during these processes.^ Since this process consumes much energy, there are many well-developed mitochondria in the bouton, or terminal bulb.

User Defined Attributes can be associated with the members in a dimension. This allows dynamic analysis and aggregation at desired level of the data. These meta data structure tables could be named as follows:
Table Name Key Columns Data Columns Comment
DIMENSION DIM_NO DESCRIPTION A single Dimension has Members in Levels arranged into Hierarchies
MEMBER DIM_NO, MEM_NO DESCRIPTION Has User Defined Attributes and belongs to a Dimension; has (Parent, Ancestor, Child, Descendant) Members unless it is the single top Member or a bottom Level Member. Members are unique in a dimension.
LEVEL DIM_NO, LEV_NO DESCRIPTION Belongs to one Hierarchy or more; has (Parent, Ancestor, Child, Descendant) Levels in a Dimension. Levels are unique in a dimension.
HIERARCHY ( Hierarchy ) DIM_NO, HIER_NO DESCRIPTION Multiple Hierarchies belong to a single Dimension and can have Convergent Levels (ie. that are the same in each Hierarchy) of one Dimension.Hierarchies are unique in a dimension.
LEVEL_RELATIONSHIP DIM_NO, HIER_NO, PARENT_LEV, CHILD_LEV ~ A pair of adjacent Levels in a Hierarchy of a Dimension. No level may have more than one child in the same Hierarchy of a Dimension. Relationships are unique in a Hierarchy of a Dimension.
MEMBER_RELATIONSHIP DIM_NO, HIER_NO, PARENT_MEM, CHILD_MEM ~ Relationship is a pair of adjacent Members from adjacent Levels in a Hierarchy of a Dimension. No Member may share a Child with another Member in the same Hierarchy of a Dimension. Relationships are unique in a Hierarchy of a Dimension.
ATTRIBUTE DIM_NO, LEV_NO, ATTRIBUTE DESCRIPTION An Attribute is attached to a Level of a Dimension. Attributes are unique in a Level of a Dimension.
ATTRIBUTE_VALUES DIM_NO, MEM_NO, ATTRIBUTE ATTRIBUTE_VALUE Attribute-values are attached to a Member of a Dimension.
MEASURE MEASURE DESCRIPTION Measures are unique and represent empirical data which can be used as input to derive other data via functions.
CUBE_DEFINITION DIM_1, ... ..., DIM_n, DIM_1_TOP_MEM, ... ..., DIM_n_TOP_MEM, DIM_1_BOT_LEV, ... ..., DIM_n_BOT_LEV DESCRIPTION Cubes may represent any sub-section of intersections between any Dimensions
CUBE_1, ... DIM_1,... ...DIM_n, DIM_1_MEMBER, ... ..., DIM_n_MEMBER MEASURE_1, ... ..., MEASURE_n A cube is a collection of Variable-Measure-Values stored on the Key of the intersection of the Dimensions it represents.

Example:
Consider a truss bridge under loads \vec F_1, \vec F_2 and \vec F_L. What are the forces in each of the members of the loaded truss, under the loads applied?
Assume that \vec F_1 = 3N, \vec F_2 = 7N and \vec F_L = 11N. Also assume that each member AB, CE etc. is \ 5 meters long and that \vec F_L is \frac{2}{3}L from \vec R_1 .
LoadedTrussBridge.JPG

Solution:
First we must solve the external forces on the truss completely. We do so by analyzing the free body diagram. Equilibrium dictates that  \sum \vec F = 0 and  \sum \vec M = 0 .
First we sum the moments about a particular point. In this case, let's use A:
 \sum \vec M_A \ = \vec F_1*2L + \vec F_2*3L + \vec F_L*\frac{8L}{3} - \vec R_2*4L = 0
Or...
 \sum \vec M_A \ = 3N*10m + 7N*15m + 11N*\frac{8*5m}{3} - \vec R_2*20 = 0
 \vec R_2 = 14.1 N.  
We may sum the forces around an arbitrary point A. .There are no \ x components of the force vectors, so  \sum \vec F_x \ = 0 .^ Where there is no hair (glabrous condition), the outer dead squamous cells rub off to reduce frictional forces.

 \sum \vec F_{xA} \ = \vec F_{AC} - \vec F_{AB} * sin{30} = 0

Here we use the previous values for \vec F_1 = 3N and \vec R_2 = 14N. Also assume that each member is \ 5 meters long.
Solution:
We solve the external forces on the truss completely. Equilibrium dictates that  \sum \vec F = 0 and  \sum \vec M = 0 .
Once again, we first sum the moments about a particular point. In this case, let's use I:
 \sum \vec M_I \ = -\vec F_1*L + \vec F_{EH}*cos{30} = 0
Or...
 \sum \vec M_I \ = -3N*5m + \vec F_{EH}*cos{30} = 0
 \vec F_{EH} = 17.3 N (in tension).
