Steel Truss Structure
The steel truss structure is made up of several rods hinged at both ends of each rod. It can be divided into plane truss and space truss. According to the parts section, it can be divided into tube truss and angle steel truss. The truss is generally composed of the upper chord, lower chord, vertical rod, diagonal web, and inter-truss support. The amount of steel used in trusses is less than that of solid web beams, the structural weight is lighter, and the rigidity is greater.
The advantage of the steel truss is that it is used to form more significant members with smaller cross-sections. It is often used in roofs, bridges, TV towers, mast towers, marine oil platforms, and tower corridors of industrial and civil buildings.
