Structural Diagrams of Inverted Truss Design
July 21st, 2011 | Back to Blog Listing
Although still very technical (as opposed to aesthetic) in nature, I was pretty excited to receive these structural truss CAD images from our structural engineer, Tsen Structural. The top left picture below shows the actual truss positions as they will sit over the foundation footprint. In all, there will be nine ( 9 ) 38? long inverted trusses to support the entire roof system. Between each of the trusses will be a system of steel cable wire purlins. The four corners of the building will also have cross bracing purlins.
