I am trying to find a good reference for the reinforcement of existing wood trusses. The trusses are about 57 years old and are consturcted of built up sections, with split ring connectors.The bottom chord is damaged. My idea to reinforce is to use steel plates or channels connected to the bottom chord to carry the excess if not the entire tension force. In particular I am looking for methods on how to transfer the force from the wood member to the new steel member. It would seem that to be effective the connections must be capable of transferring the forces into the steel sections. I have looked at "Wood Engineering and Construction Handbook, page 6.103 to 6.106. This example covers sizing the new member but seems to be vague on the connection to the truss. Any reference books or other information or ideas would be appreciated. Sincerely, David N.Martin, P.E.
