11 meter long trusses
In this portfolio I will show you a truss I designed for Construccions Narcís Matas two years ago.
The design mixes welded and bolted unions, due to the situation of the building, I mean, the trusses had to be assembled in a little town which its roads cannot cope 11 meter long trusses, so, I decided to split them into three pieces and I thought about the easier way to assemble it in the site. Eventually, the solution was to mix welded and bolted unions.
All the unions and profiles have been designed and calculated according the Spanish Instruction EAE and the CTE DB SE-A.
I could go to the site in a while and take some pictures, which I show you below. I hope you enjoy them!
