TRS001 BASE STORY Axial force strength not satisfied

In steel truss design, the design ratio under axial force, tension force, and compression force, buckling limit states are considered according to CYTHYE 2016 (GKT & YDKT), AISC 360-16 (ASD & LRFD) or EN 1993-1-1 codes.

  • The design ratio value should be less than 1.00.

Possible Solutions:

  • Laterally unbraced length of the steel element can be reduced by using steel braces.

  • The truss member cross-section can be enlarged.

  • By changing the truss pattern, an element that is under axial compression in the support area can be switched to tension.
