The truss design results and the shortage of steel trusses are displayed in the Trusses dialog. In the Trusses dialog, the axial compressive strength ratio, slenderness control and design ratio of the truss elements are displayed.

Location of the Trusses Dialog

After the analysis is done, you can access it by clicking the Truss command under the Steel Design heading in the ribbon menu Analysis and Design tab .

Trusses

Specifications

ID
