AbstractTrussed roof construction for dwellings in Canada has been influenced greatly by the work of research organizations in the United States. Notable among these organizations has been the Small Homes Council of the University of Illinois. The Small Homes Council has published several working sheets of data on house trusses which can be readily used by home builders to mention only one example of the useful information that has been made available. A review has been made of this information to assist in similar work at the Building Research Centre. In this work the more severe loading conditions imposed by the Canadian climate are taken into account.
