Re: Ridge beam/joist analysis

I'd always though of it as a pinned system, with the collar resisting an amplified thrust (lever action), and the resulting moment in the rafters due to a point load and pinned ends.

The collar tie is the tension member at some distances d from the
compression stress (max at the top of the ridge) that forms a couple and
thus moment transfer. Making the two rafters act as a continuous beam over
the ridge support.
