Definition: A body is said to be rigid if relative displacement or relative displacements or relative deformations of various points of a body is negligibly small.

For a certain load body may be rigid but if we increase the intensity of load it may deform because it exceeds its allowable limit.

Important Points:

  1. No object is absolute rigid.
  2. During analysis we assume all structures as rigid.
  3. If structure is very rigid then it becomes brittle and can be collapsed.
