A Long Span Hybrid Truss for a Sport Building


Article Preview

This paper presents an experimental work about the design of a truss roof for a long-spanbuilding. This study makes use of an innovative hybrid truss that has been developed in a parallelstudy. The project presented herein shows the direct application of the technology on an existingbuilding, emphasizing its feasibility, potentiality and functionality. The paper highlights thecharacteristic of adaptability to both newly designed buildings and existing ones. Starting from thetruss prototype, different shape configurations that the technology allows are hypothesized. Thefinal roof shape is selected based on study aiming at optimizing the elements sections.
