Difference between Machine and Structure
1. A device which transforms available energy into useful work is called as machine. Structure dose not transform energy in to the useful work.
2. The link of machine made transmit both power relative motion and forces.
The members of structure transmit forces only.
3. Machine can have one or more mechanism. Structure does not have mechanism.
4. Examples of machine are: Drilling machine, Lathe machin etc. Examples of structure are: Machine frames, Bridge etc.
