Truss, 2 points (K, KT, K2T, N)


This script creates a planar truss. The placement is defined by the 2 end points of the top cord of the truss. The top cord is linear between the 2 defined points, and the bottom cord is parallel with the top. The available truss types are: K, K+T, K+2T and N. Other input parameters are: height of the truss, number of fields, material, and sections, which can be set through input dialogues after the start of the script run.

Current version: 1.2 (release date: 2022.07.21.)
- Changed hollow section options from cold-formed to hot-rolled (e.g., CF-SHS 100x4 -> SHS 100x4). This way our current online section optimization scripts can be run on the created truss right away.

v1.1 (release date: 2022.07.07.)
- Added RHS and CHS section options.

v1.0 (release date: 2022.06.24.)
