1. (Geom.) Any part of a curved line.
(a) Usually a curved member made up of separate
wedge-shaped solids, with the joints between them
disposed in the direction of the radii of the curve;
used to support the wall or other weight above an
opening. In this sense arches are segmental, round (i.
e., semicircular), or pointed.
(b) A flat arch is a member constructed of stones cut into
wedges or other shapes so as to support each other
without rising in a curve.
Note: Scientifically considered, the arch is a means of
spanning an opening by resolving vertical pressure into
horizontal or diagonal thrust.
