Goals and Objectives

This application is intended to be used primarily by Design Professionals (architects, engineers, etc.), Building Code Officials, Contractors and Inspectors with the goal of helping everyone that uses it to more easily understand the loads, parameters, calculations and limitations of a given common truss design. By changing geometry and loading parameters multiple design scenarios can be quickly compared and analyzed, hopefully providing a benefit to the design professional. However, let it be noted that this application is purely a tool to be used, similar in concept to that of a calculator or estimator, and is not intended to replace engineering analysis nor sound engineering judgment.
