Statics: Types of Constraints

Types of Constraints

All Statics problems have constraints. There are three different types of constraints, fixed, pinned, and rolling. From these constrains it is possible that there could be a total of six resultant forces and moments for a 3d problem, which means the maximum number of statics equations that can be used to describe a problem would be six.
