    If we are talking about a jet engine (or something similar), sustaining the horizontal and vertical thrust.

    mmh ... k_georgiadis, I don't think we are talking of a jet engine but of the walls of a building ...
    Maybe your suggestion is right anyway... (I don't know the specific nuances of the word thrust).
    Maybe you could say also sustaining the horizontal and vertical stress

    If we are talking about walls, I would definitely use stress or forces.
