7.2. shear

7.2.1. lighting

7.3. tension

7.3.1. Wind against Eiffel tower

8. types of loads

8.1. dead load

8.1.1. material of Eiffel tower

8.1.1.1. iron lattice

8.2. dynamic load

8.2.1. wind

8.3. live load

8.3.1. people on Eiffel tower

9. form and function

9.1. the function is to show how tall and pretty the Eiffel tower is.And also a observation tower, Transmitter station
