Truss Configurations

An understanding of truss geometry by the designer will assist in dealing with load paths imposed
by the truss system. Trusses come in many configurations, which include parallel chord truss for
floors and flat roofs and peaked trusses for typical roof applications. Trusses can also be stacked
to support an infinite combination of roof profiles.
