Truss Configurations


An understanding of truss geometry by the designer will assist in dealing with load paths imposed by the truss system. Trusses come in many configurations, which include parallel chord truss for floors and flat roofs and peaked trusses for typical roof applications. Trusses can also be stacked to support an infinite combination of roof profiles.
