The Collapse of Triangulated Trusses by Buckling within the Plane of the Truss

THE results of a series of tests on triangulated trusses are presented. The trusses were fabricated from rolled steel sections and welded to blocks at the joints. Four were made in the form of two bay Warren trusses, and three in the shape of simple triangles. They appear to confirm previous theory as to the prediction of their collapse loads, and of the deflection of the members. J. G. Nutt
