Thanks for the reply's. After i posted i see there was a similar thread posted recently with the "wish list" So many books but will short list.
I like the king/queen post frame of a truss and would like to explore how the forces work on this particular truss.As i understand it the rafters are tennoned into the tie beam, How do you determine the shear plane beyond the tie and distance? The rafters towards the ridge are again tennoned into the king post, same question there.
Ive just finished with a team of guys a traditional West Sussex oak framed barn.
On framing up the roof we tennoned the principle rafters into the tie beam but only used a bridle joint above, fine for oak but a bit more challenging in the round?
Which brings the frame round to using a king post and more appropriate.I see from your previous thread that one book doesn't reveal all on framing up trusses.So gathering information and span tables/spread sheets am finding hard to achieve, maybe there's a book in there for someone!.
Thank you and look forward to exploring the roundwood truss some more....
