The following instructions are important to understand the individual calculation. Read them first, th
of this sheet to start your calculation!

The limits of a Truss-system


Each Truss-System has its own limits. 2 Parameters are verry important:
- shear forces (V), that stress the braces, their weldings, their buckling-attitude, their heat influenced zones
- bending moments (M), that stress the maintubes and all parts of a connection

Also local stresses can be limiting smal areas, so the maximum point-pressure on each main tube is conside
A simulation on a surface of 40mm x 3mm is the basic for the decl
Much higher loads are possible if you use round surfaced couplers

The thickness of the maintubes´wall is the limiting parameter. If you choose a higher load than the possible
point-pressure the "knot numbers" will remind you: "high pressure" - use round surfaced couplers!

The individual calculation determins the shear force and the bending moments and compares them to the
permissible values of the truss system.
If your loadcase creates more than permissible values for Vz,My - the programm gives you a warning:

Seite 24
Instruction

The red line is crossed! - Overload!

The input
You can create an individual loadcase with 2 supports.
The koordinate of each load and of the position of the supports is defined by you.
First fill in the whole length of the (beam) truss, than klick "Start - distribute knots"
Than put your loads on the relevant knots. And mark supported knots with a "y" (yes).

You also can fill in a position x manual, if your load is between


the proposed knots. Important: your manually filled in position must fit between the
adjacent knot-positions. This operation causes a smal deviation of the results for the bendingmoment.
The absolut error in this case is smaler than 5%.

You also can put on a global distributed load. The selfweight is always considered by the programm.
1 kN <> 100 kg

For example the following loadcase is analysed: A Eurotruss FD 34 should be used

1,5 kN 1,0 kN 2,0 kN 3,0 kN

After choosing "FD34" return to the calculation - the input should look like this:

Instruction

The results:

FD34 is not the right system for this loadcase - overload!


The limits are displayed by the red lines in the diagram.
You can check the results at every position by moving the curser to the curve.
In the upper sqares you receive the decisive values for your loadcase. The "min" and "max" should never ex
permissibe values of your system! In this example the bendingmoment is much to high for FD34.

Now we click on the "system change button" on top of the page and choose "ST"

Seite 27
Instruction

The ST-Truss is capable for high loads and is only stressed with a lower utilisation.

You will also be informed abaut the reactions of the system on the support. This helps you to
choose the right shakles, spansets, steels and hoists.

for ST

Always remember:
The author, and all distributors of this Programm are not responsible for any damage or harm to equipment
We designed it and will develope it as good as we can to give you best support for your Eurotruss - System.
Even if your individual calculation gives you "green light" consider the dynamic of hoists etc.
If you reach high utilisation, the elastic deflection of your system might be unsightly.
If you want to be insured, ask your dealer or Eurotruss, or Expo-Engineering.

To the calculation ! Choose your system
