Concurrent Coplanar Force System

A concurrent co-planar force system is a system of two or more forces whose lines of action ALL intersect at a common point. However, all of the individual vectors might not actually be in contact with the common point.

These are the most simple force systems to resolve with any one of many graphical or algebraic options.

There are many ways in which forces can be manipulated. It is often easier to work with a large, complicated system of forces by reducing it to an ever decreasing number of smaller problems. This is called the “resolution” of forces or force systems. This is one way to simplify what may otherwise seem to be an impossible system of forces acting on a body. Certain systems of forces are easier to resolve than others. Co-planar force systems have all the forces acting in in one plane. They may be concurrent, parallel, non-concurrent or non-parallel. All of these systems can be resolved by using graphic statics or algebra.
