  7. A Howe Truss is being considered to support the roofing system of a residential building. The pitch of the truss is 1 vertical 3 horizontal. What is the total length of the top chord, if the span of truss is 12 meters and the eave is 1.5 meters horizontally?

    A. 7.567 meters
    B. 7.555 meters
    C. 7.906 meters (Your Answer)Correct
    D. 7.675 meters

    paano 'to i-solve? hehe.. hinulaan ko lng kasi.. --,

    1. Simple use Ratio Proportion to solve this problem:
      Hint: Use only one side of the truss, better divide it into 2.
      Divide 12.00 meters span into 2 parts it will give you 6.00 meters. So now focus on the Right triangle as you draw then. using the vertical 1 and horizontal 3.

      1*3 = x*6
      Let x = height of the truss

      so, x = 6/3 = 2
      Height of Main Truss (King post) = 2.oo meters

      Now Focus on the Eaves given 1.50 meters
      Still use Ratio Proportion;

      1*3 = y*2
      Let y = be the height of the vertical part adjacent to the length of eave.

      So y = 1.5/3 = 0.50 meters

      The upon solving the 2 Triangles:

      Triangle 1:
      Given Span = 6.00 meters
      Height is 2:00 meters
      Now solve for the Diagonal Span of roof (Sp1)

      Use Pythagorean Theorem:
      C = /(a*a) + (b*b)
      Let c = Sp1
      Sp1 (c)= / (2*2)+(6*6)
      Sp1 = /4 + 36
      Sp1 = 6.32 meters

      Triangle 2:
      Given Span = 1.50 meters (Eaves)
      Height: 0.50 meters

      Use Pyhthagorean Theorem
      Let c = Sp2
      Sp2 (c) = /(0.5*0.5) + (1.5*1.5)
      Sp2 = /0.25 + 2.25
      Sp2 = /2.5
      Sp2 = 1.58

      Than Add or sum up the two Sp1 + Sp2
      Final Answer : 6.32 meters + 1.58 meters
      Total Span of the Roof = 7.901 meters (closer to answer 7.906 meters)

      Hint: Better draw and substitute all the given value so it will be more easy for you to understand. Good luck! Mabuhay ang Arkitektong Pilipino! :)
