Some Problems in the Design of Steel Roof Truss Members

INTRODUCTION. In the design of steel roof truss members but little consideration is usually given to the bending actions which often occur. The most important of these may be conveniently grouped under the following heads:- (1) Lateral loading on rafters. (2) Eccentricity of riveting. (3) Non-intersection of axes of members at joints. (4) Rigidity of joints and deformation of truss under load. A.G. Pugsley
