A type in which a detached buttress or pier at a distance from a wall is connected to the wall by an arch or portion of arch.
An arch or half-arch transmitting the thrust of a vault or roof from the upper part of a wall to an outer support or buttress; characteristic of Gothic style churches and cathedrals.
Buttress connected with a wall at some distance by an arch or partial arch which serves to resist outward pressure.
A masonry structure that consists of a straight inclined bar carried on an arch and a solid pier or buttress against which it abuts and that receives the weight of a roof or wall.
a buttress that stands apart from the main structure and connected to it by an arch
a free-standing buttress attached to the main structure by an arch or a half-arch
an arch or half-arch that transmits the thust of a vault or roof from the upper part of a wall to an outer support or buttress
an arch support or brace built between the wall of a building and a supporting column to bear some of the outward pressure of the weight of the roof
an external, arched support for the wall of a building
a sort of brace which juts out from the side of the building, supporting the overwhelming weight of the wall
a structure found in Gothic architecture and consists of an inclined bar carried on an arch (equivalent to the root here), which rests against a support (ground) to receive the weight of a wall (trunk)
a buttress (or abutment - see this word) attached to the top of the vaults by means of a half-arch which transmits the thrust of the vault into the ground, thus lending strength and solidity to the structure. This is one of the main and most recognizable features of Gothic architecture
a support on the outer side of a structure
A masonry support branching from the sturdy piers and vertical Standing buttresses. Their role is to transfer the great weight of the vaulted roofs off to this more solid support of the firmly set abutments. In French: "arc boutant."
A detached pier supporting the weight of a wall.
Typically consists of an inclined member carried on an arch or a series of arches and a solid buttress to which it transmits lateral thrust.
A free-standing buttress linked to the building by part of a arch to provide strength against the lateral forces
An arch or half-arch that transfers the thrust of a vault or roof from an upper part of a wall to a lower support.
A support connected with a wall by an arch, needed to hold up the high walls of a Gothic cathedral.
a technique of external buttressing in which an arch or half-arch transmits the thrust of the vault downward to a buttress or other support
In architecture, a flying buttress, or arc-boutant, is usually on a religious building, used to transmit the thrust of a vault across an intervening space (which might be an aisle, chapel or cloister), to a buttress outside the building. The employment of the flying buttress means that the load bearing walls can contain cut-outs, such as for large windows, that would otherwise seriously weaken the vault walls.
