INTRODUCTION :
A truss is an articulated (skeletal) structure with hinged
or ball and socket joints. It is an assemblage of slender
bars fastened together at their ends by smooth pins or ball
and socket joints acting as hinges.
Plane truss: A truss consisting of members which lie in a
plane and are loaded in the same plane is called a plane
truss. Ex: Roof truss, bridge truss, etc.
Space truss: A truss made up of members not lying in
the same plane is referred to as space truss. Ex: Electric
power transmission tower, microwave tower, etc.
