# Design of Roof (Pratt) truss

Design Data:Plan length of the building l = Plan depth of the building w = Height of the building excluding pitched roof h = Dead weight of AC sheets = Dead weight of purlins,fixtures and false roofing system = Span of the truss = Height of the truss = Spacing of trusses = 0 Live load on pitched roof (For pitched roof having slope 20 ) = Distance between the nodal points(purlin locations) on top rafter = Wind coefficients:k1 (risk coefficient assuming 50 years of design life) = k2 (assuming terrain category 2) = k3 = 1.0 (topography factor) Basic wind speed Vb = Internal wind pressure coefficient Cpi (Buildings with low permeability) = Slope of the pitched roof in degrees = 10.13m 5.72m 3.35m 0.13KN/sqm 0.45KN/sqm 5.49m 1.00m 3.30m 0.55KN/sqm 0.97m 1.00 1.00 1.00 50.00m/sec 0.20 20
