Objectives: A truss is a structure composed of slender members that are connected at their ends by joints. The truss is one of the most important structures in engineering applications. After studying this chapter, students should be able to recognise if a given truss is statically and kinematically determinate. In addition, they will become familiar with methods to determine the internal forces in a statically determinate truss.
