Record Type: concept
posts (structural elements) (<supporting and resisting elements>, structural elements, ... Components (hierarchy name))

 

Note: In architecture or other construction, refers to stiff, vertical, relatively isolated members of considerable length. Posts are typically round, square, or rectangular in cross-section and are used in building as supports for a superstructure or to provide a firm point of lateral attachment. They are characteristically relatively undecorated and made of a single timber, but may be made of stone, metal, another material, or composite materials. The term is particularly used for any main vertical support in a timber frame structure. For square uprights in classical style, and for square and rectangular masonry uprights, use "piers (supporting elements)"; for most cylindrical uprights, and for all uprights in steel and concrete frames, use "columns (architectural elements)."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst in de architectuur of de bouw in het algemeen naar stevige, verticale, relatief geïsoleerde constructiedelen van aanzienlijke lengte. Palen zijn in doorsnede gewoonlijk rond, vierkant of rechthoekig en worden gebruikt ter ondersteuning van een grotere constructie of als vast punt voor zijwaartse bevestiging. Ze zijn gewoonlijk relatief weinig versierd en gemaakt van één houtsoort, maar kunnen ook van steen, metaal of een ander materiaal zijn of van een samenstelling van materialen. De term wordt voornamelijk gebruikt voor verticale stutten in een houten balkenconstructie. Gebruik 'pijlers (dragende elementen)' voor vierkante staanders in klassieke stijl en voor vierkante en rechthoekige gemetselde staanders. Gebruik 'zuilen (architecturale elementen)' voor cilindrische staanders in staal- en betonconstructies.
