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,

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
