Design of Roof Trusses

An Guide for Structural Engineers involved in Design of Roof Trusses.

This section is suitable for practicing Structural Engineers, Graduates and Students in Engineering.

This section will provide a series of specialized articles for those involved in the Design of Roof Trusses for buildings, using steel and timbers. All structural members are usually small and jointed by welds, bolts, or special connectors. A practical and simple approach is emphasized throughout, so quick references can be made. For more theoretical approach, readers are to refer to Book Sections.

Engineering Tutorials, Calculation Examples, Design and Worked Examples, Drawings & Details are all available for download or purchase.

Engineering Training & Courses are conducted regularly.

Should you have any queries, check out the Forum, or Engineers Q&A Section, or Contact Us. Technical Support is only provided to Registered Members.
