Chapter 6 – Structural Analysis Truss Review What is a Truss? Trusses are stationary structures used to support and transmit loads. They are composed of slender two-force members connected by pins at their end points. Analysis of 2D Trusses Purpose is to determine forces in truss members Three assumptions: Loads are applied only at the joints Members are joined together by smooth pins Weight of members is typically neglected Truss Members Truss members can be in one of three conditions Zero Force Member
