Where are the Pull forces in this triangle structure?


Hello

I know I think this question doesn't belong here, but I hope some will know the answer and wants to help me out ( I checked if other people ask about engineering stuff and I saw some so I hope it's okay)

So I made this structure (see photo) and I think there is no 'pull forces' only 'push forces'
Is this correct? If not, where are the pull forces in this structure? :/
I want to be sure that i'm right or not

The structure is a double triangle that stands on vertical skewers (see the drawing)

Where are the Pull forces in this triangle structure?

Thanks in advance for helping me!

  • You should look at this as members, each sticks carries the forces. The top part is in a compression forces, pushing downwards.. Thats the first clue, you just need to figure out which members are in tension force (pulling). Looking at it fast, there's got to be a member in tension. Its impossible not to

  • You mean like if you lift it, and it stays balanced?
