Working Principle of Aluminum Stage Truss

Date: 18.08.2022 Viewed: times

The aluminum stage truss is a structure with constant geometric shape composed of some triangular frames composed of straight rods. The joints between members are called nodes (or nodes). According to the axis of the truss members and the distribution of the external force, the truss can be divided into flat stage truss and space stage truss. Spatial structures such as roof trusses or bridges are composed of a series of parallel plane trusses. If they mainly bear plane loads, they can be simplified as plane trusses for calculation.

The working principle of the aluminum flat stage truss

The axis and the external force of the members that make up the truss are on the same plane. Planar trusses can be thought of as adding members to a basic triangular frame. For every two rods added, a new node must be formed so that the geometry of the structure remains the same. This kind of truss that can maintain geometric solidity is called a redundant rod (or no redundant rod) truss. If you only add members without adding nodes, you cannot maintain the geometric robustness of the truss, which is called a redundant (or redundant) truss.

Triangular Plate Truss

The working principle of the aluminum stage truss is that the axis and the external force of each member of the truss are not on the same plane. In engineering, some space trusses cannot be simplified as plane trusses, such as grid structures. Tower, crane frame, etc. The nodes of the space truss are smooth spherical hinge joints, and the axes of the rods all pass through the spherical hinge center of the connection point and can rotate around any axis of the spherical hinge center. Each node has three degrees of freedom in space. 

The relationship between the number of nodes and members is W=3j-n, W>0 is a geometrically variable truss, and W=0 is a space truss with constant geometry and no redundant constraints. The space truss is the same as the plane truss, and the partial cutting method and the joint method can be used to obtain the internal force of all members in the truss. The partial cutting rule is to use the six equilibrium conditions of an arbitrary force system in space to obtain the internal force of each rod. The nodal method is to intercept the nodes as spacers, and use the three equilibrium conditions of the spatially converging force system on each node to obtain the internal force of each rod.

Triangle Bolt Truss

Triangle spigot truss

Triangle Spigot Truss has the maximum axial force at the end point of the upper and lower chords of Triangle Spigot Truss under uniformly distributed nodal loads along the span, and gradually decreases towards the middle of the span; the axial force of the web of Triangle Spigot Truss is the opposite. Triangle Spigot Truss is mostly used in tile roof frame because of the large difference in internal force of chords and unreasonable material consumption.

Triangle Spigot Truss

Compared with Triangle Spigot Truss, Trapezoidal Truss has improved the force condition of the rod, and it is easier to meet the process requirements of some industrial plants when used in roofing. If the upper and lower chords of trapezoidal truss are parallel, it is a parallel chord truss, and the load on the rod is slightly worse than trapezoidal truss, but the type of web is greatly reduced, and it is used in bridges and trestle bridges.
