Circular Truss

Project Description

This 144-member circular truss was tested under two very large 2,100 kN down forces. The steel structure has a radius of 1.3 m and under this loading deflected 28 mm and the max stress was 14326 MPa (Top Combined Moment/Axial), which was found to be well under the yield stress of this particular material.
