I would like to design a steel roof truss,with bottom and top chord to be double angles,but for the branches i would like to use solid rods(reinforcement bars,Grade 410 BS) how do i create a solid bar (reinforcement) in my truss so as to be designed as a truss member.
Have you checked the wiki posted by Kris? Does that not solve your issue? In that case upload the file.
I know IS800 2007 (Indian code) design solid rods for sure. If you are looking for any other code, please let me know the exact code. I will check and let you know.
Thanks & regards,

I did as instructed on wiki,i specified inner diameter to be zero,but when it comes to design by using Eurocode,the angle section of bottom and top code was not designed,the design was aborted,i dont know what is wrong?
When i did it by using bs 5950,it works,i dont know what is wrong with Eurocode?
This was the warning which i got when using Eurocode
WARNING: ABORTING EUROPEAN CODE DESIGN
Which version you are using? UI have tested the file in latest version 22.07.00.160 with Euro code and it runs without any error.
I am attaching the .anl for your ready reference. If you are using any older version please upgrade and check.
Iam using Staad Pro Update 5

Please upgrade to V22 Update 7and check.
Update 7 has a problem in Mat foundation,the mat foundation will fail in punching shear check as i reported before even if you increase the depth of the mat foundation while the same thickness will pass in Update 5,that is why i shifted back to Update 5.
And i have more questions in Mat foundation,i posted here but i didnt get an answer,the design of beam in mat foundation is not available only slab designer is available i dont know what is wrong with my software
And i have another problem which is in Update 5 and 7,in Mat foundation i dont see the option of beam design in Mat foundation,the only thing which is available is Slab designer as seen here.
