  1. straight arch

    A straight arch is a structural element that is typically used in architecture and civil engineering. Unlike traditional curved arches, it is shaped like an inverted V or a triangle, with a straight horizontal line at the base and two straight lines that form an angle at the top. While it doesn't distribute loads as efficiently as curved arches, it is easier to construct and widely used in modern architecture. It provides support and stability to any structure such as bridges, roofs, doors, and windows.
