In addition to the extensive historical research on the original bridge and the computer analysis of the trusses
, RBA's initial services included the following, which resulted in the preparation of a preliminary engineering report and a preliminary plan:
Photo: Rustic strength of exposed trusses
gives character to kitchen-dining space
Together, the 25 trusses
act as a composite structure 75m long, transferring horizontal loads from the glass facade.
Over a living room--dining addition, the trusses
support a tar-and-gravel roof with rigid insulation and an exposed plywood ceiling.
we show are designed to handle the 4-ft.
This penthouse element would have caused too much deflection in the stressed skin structure, so it is suspended from exposed trusses
above, which transmit its loads back to the columns.
The scheme involved pre-assembling two or three trusses
and both levels of framing to form panels that would be transported to the job site by barge and erected from the water.
A: Indeed, a roof framed with trusses
easily matches the strength of a conventionally framed roof.
The main structural elements of the moving part are four triangulated inverted bowstring trusses
It covers the technical history of metal plate connected wood trusses
, the industry's evolution, and current design and construction practices.
Engineered for simplicity--do-it-yourself trusses
and complete framing plans.
The roof's tubular steel structure has two primary trusses
220m long which flank the main axis of the pitch.
Finger-jointed lumber has been used in wood trusses
on a limited basis before; however, producers and truss makers often were forced to provide additional documentation to gain approvals.
The Planar-glazed walls are supported on light steel trusses
which in turn carry steel mesh sun shades.
noticed an increase in orders for its roof trusses
last November and there has been no slowdown since, according to Hesperia Truss General Manager Jeff Mason.
