Such suddenly applied loads, actually called impact loads, can be shown to be fleetingly equivalent to many times their statically applied weights. The dynamic pressure of a slap, compared to the static pressure of a caress, may never have been measured, but one can certainly feel it. The fleeting effects of a dynamic load depend on how fast the load varies. This raises a question: for example, should the pressure on a building created by a wind gust, first increasing and then decreasing, be considered a static or a dynamic load?

3, which give at a glance the maximum wind speeds to be expected. But should one design for the strongest wind ever at the site of a building? If this maximum wind were always taken into account, the cost of the wind structure would become unjustifiably high. It is wiser to design buildings so that they will be undamaged by a wind with a chance of occurring once in, say, 50 years, but to allow minor damage under the forces of a 100 year wind (as a wind is called that has a chance of occurring once in 100 years).

Steel build­ ings must be fireproofed to retard the heating of its columns and beams in a fire. Concrete, instead, is a particularly good insulating material and prevents for a long time the heating and yielding of its reinforcing steel bars. Reinforced concrete buildings do not have to be fireproofed. , called its transition 0 The word plastic has two different meanings in structures and in chemistry. In structures it indicates the inelastic behavior just described; in chemistry it describes a large variety of man-made organic materials like cellu­ loid or bakelite, some of which, notwithstanding their name, behave elastically.
