Atlas Tube (an AISC member), a division of JMC Steel Group, offers a new online video, “Truss Connections,” as part of its “Designing with HSS” educational video series, available for free online viewing.
The video, presented by Atlas Tube senior sales engineer Brad Fletcher, discusses the specifics of trusses with HSS, including joint types, fabrication costs, failure modes, design approaches and welding.
According to Fletcher, some of the top things to think about when designing trusses with HSS are:
- Keep the number of different sizes small
- Try to minimize the number of connections
- Understand the effects of joint configuration and connection design criteria before analyzing truss and selecting member sizes
