AbstractThis report presents the results of investigations of a type of lightweight nailed W truss, the design of which has been influenced by the results of tests on conventional constructions, keeping in mind the need for producing a truss, both economical and simple to construct either in a factory or on the site. The economic considerations were influenced by the relatively high cost of plywood in Eastern Canada. For Western Canada some alterations in design could be made, to make greater use of plywood gusset plates. It is hoped that such designs may be included in future investigations on roof trusses.
