The triple-helix structure is stabilized by abundant interchain hydrogen bonds, many via the hydroxyprolines. Intramolecular covalent cross-links in or near the nonhelical ends of the molecule provide further structural stability, often via hydroxylysine. Type IV collagen also has extensive disulfide bonds.

0, ... , but i x i = 0, i x } = k, = (yAFz -ZAFy)i + (zAFx -xAFz)}+(xAFy - yAFx)k. Consequently, M z + (XAFy - yAFx) = 0, from which the reaction moments are computed easily. Although it is critical to rely on the mathematics to solve 3-D problems, it is also important to consider simple special cases, for they provide important checks and they help to develop our intuition. For example, with (XB' YB, ZB) = (0, L, 0), consider a special case where (XA' YA, ZA) = (L, L, 0) and, thus, (Fx, Fy, Fz ) = (T, 0, 0), which is to say a simple horizontal load at the top of the strut.

For the part including pin A, we have, 38 1. Introduction LFx =O~ACcoslhAB-F=O, . F F 2 F LFy =O~ACsmO--=O~AC=- r;;; = r;;;, 2 2 ... 2 ... 2 where sin 0 = -J2/2 and cos 0 = -J2/2 given the geometry. From the xdirection equation, therefore, we find that AB = F/2. Similarly, for the part containing pin B, we have LFx = O~-BCcosO-BA= 0, LFy =O~BCsinO+ F =O~BC=- ~ 2 ... 2 and thus from the x-direction equation, BA = F/2. , all reactions and internal forces have been found in terms of F and l), we shall consider the part containing pin C as a consistency check.
