The Design of Continuous Members in Timber Trussed Rafters with Punched Metal Connector Plates

When timber trussed rafters were first introduced in the UK some 16 years ago, they were constructed to span tables produced by the Princes Risborough Laboratory from a programme of tests on prototype units. The resulting roof constructions, as well as using the materials efficiently, have been shown by time to be satisfactory in service. Phillip O'Reece
