 A hanging chain forms a catenary (from the latin for chain) curve. When this curve is turned upside down, it makes an arch that efficiently distributes loads.

    If you are a visitor and reading this post, just a quick question: why? MOS Lecture Notes gets a ridiculous amount of external traffic, far more than any other post (even other lectures) and I’m itching to find out why this is. How did you find us, and what are you looking for here?

    I found this by chance looking for pictures of Gaudi’s hanging chain models for structural form-finding.
    Thanks
