Abstract

Investigation of an innovative type of long span steel truss. A 3D truss of triangular cross section made of High Strength Steel (HSS) is designed and tested while Finate Element Modelling (FEM) is intended to extend the results. This research regards the behaviour of the 3D connections of the tension chord to the diagonals.
