Rise

 

the maximum height of the geometric axis or median surface of a curved structure, such as an arch or a vault, above the line or plane joining the abutments of the structure. The magnitude of the rise is chosen on the basis of a number of factors—for example, the most advantageous structural behavior of the structure. Architectural considerations, such as the general layout of the structure, also influence the height chosen for the rise. The concept of rise is sometimes extended to linear or planar structures that have a camber.
