Equilibrium is balanced, steady and resultant of forces on a particle is 0.
Trusses are simply defined as triangulation of members to make the stabilized structure. Triangulation is the stable configuration mathematically. Generally, a truss has the members called as top chord, bottom chord, vertical chord and diagonal chord. The main functions of the trusses are
- Carrying the loads from the over structures
- Providing adequate lateral stability to the entire structure
