Trusses are classic, simple structural forms that have been used for centuries. Historically, heavy timber trusses have been used for structures such as churches, barns and factories. Vaulting steel trusses have been used for train sheds, halls and bridges. This work provides architects and builders with a fundamental understanding of trusses including: history, basic structural behaviour, practical investigation and design, construction detail development, and architectural applications and accommodations. The book is unique in presenting a juxtaposition of old and new truss designs and technologies.
