tension implies something is being stretched or strained whereas compression means to be squashed or compacted , reduced in size

Q 1: the fulcrum point is the point on a cantilevered structure where, if the critical tie was taken out at the same lift height as the cantilevered walkway, the scaffold would effectively spin on the doubles at the bottom of the cantilever tube and fail

noticed no-ones answered that one yet if im wrong please let me know, SCOTTISH SCAFF!

Fulcrum point: The point of pivot nearest the outside edge of a suspension rig and about which the balancing moments of a suspension rig are calculated.

ive read the question , the answer and the definition of fulcrum point but personally i thought it would be the at the bottom of the tube that is taking the weight or holding the scaffold upright

always learning
