truss structure

Truss structure analysis according to API, ISO and AISC standards.

The analysis of truss structures is available via the site to assist with hand calculations and as a plug-in in FEMAP.

This program does the following checks on your truss structure:

  • Column checks on tension, compression and bending, including buckling;
  • For brace to chord connections; punching shear check of symmetrical I-beams, round and rectangular beam members;
  • Fatigue stress ranges in the connections, including stress concentrations of round and rectangular members;

The program automatically detects chord and brace members and determines their lengths for the orientation of in-plane and out-of-plane bending. The video below shows you briefly how quick you can perform a check on your truss structure.
