What is the depth of this Truss?
 
I shall be interested in knowing the details as you progress with this.
 
Also, do you intend to load-test the sample? I recommend you should.
 
Regards and good luck with this VENTURE!!!

Subject: new lightweight steel truss/bridge design

 

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am seeking like minded engineers to participate in a new lightweight steel truss/bridge design... I am presently assembling a 27 metre (90 ft) span using only 25x25x2.5 (1"x1") as the main top chord.

 

The truss is different in that it has three chords/double webbing compared to the conventional two chord/single layer webbing... The aim is to control horizontal deflection or 'buckling'... which cannot be done with conventional single layer methods.

 

If you are interested in viewing plans and photos as work proceeds I will be happy to keep you informed... No catches!

 

Kindest regards,

David
