The equilibrium of forces throughout a structure at rest represents an important basis for the analysis of those forces. Provided the structure stays at rest as the loads are applied, the structure can be described as being in a state of static equilibrium. There are conditions of dynamic equilibrium relating to bodies in motion, including structures, but this text is concerned only with statics—that is, the interaction of bodies at rest.
