They found it to be, given the limited linear supporting capability of stones in a pre-steel era, an effective way of supporting bridges and aquaducts.

The arch of Titus was not commemorated, it was a commemoration. It was a triumphal arch. This kind of arch was an honorific arch which commemorated victories in battle. The Arch of Titus is on the Via Sacra, just to the south-east of the Roman Forum. It was built in 82 AD by Emperor Domitian shortly after the death of his older brother Titus to commemorate Titus' victories in the First Roman-Jewish War, including the Siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD.

To honour their victories the Romans built the triumphal arches. These were monumental structures with arches. Their walls were covered with reliefs with scenes of the won battle and dedications to the general (during the Roman Republic) or the emperor (later) who won the battle. The Triumphal Arch in Paris and the Marble Arch in London are modelled on the Roman triumphal arch. The most famous triumphal arch in Rome is the Arch of Constantine. Some emperors had also triumphal columns built. These were tall columns built by stacking large drums of marble and were covered with , again, reliefs with scenes of the won battle. The most famous of these are the Column of Trajan and the Column of Marcus Aurelius. Both are still standing in the city of Rome.


No, it was simply built as a monument. The arch would have little to no effect on a tornado even if it took a direct hit.
