In both kinds of buildings, vertical movement of people and other objects require the use of special equipments such as elevators, escalators, or special material moving systems. The general structure of any vertical transport system makes use of a screw which is in conjunction with a friction-free nut. The screw is mounted in a way such that during use it remains in tension rather than in compression; as it can bend due to compression. The nut is usually rotatably driven to achieve vertical movement. The details of different... transportations systems are explained further. Elevators are mostly used to transport people, called passenger elevators. They can also be used to transport materials in which case they are called freight elevators. Whether the elevator is for people or for material, there are basically two types of systems. One is overhead suspended elevator and another is hydraulic elevator. Suspended elevator uses steel cables and electric motors. These usually travel fast and are therefore used for tall buildings. Hydraulic elevator is operated by a hydraulic piston which is situated in a chamber below the elevator cab. The piston moves in a rotatory motion about its pivot which in turn makes the cab traverse vertically... ...
