TRUSS RATING PROGRAM

The file name is RATRS. This program generates a speed table for each member of a truss based on cooper loading is generated through the use of 1130 STRES program which analyses structures. The influence line is obtained by loading the truss at each panel point within a unit load. The result is filed for use by RATRS. The input consists of member number, gross and net areas, moment of inertia (compression members only) and D.L. and/or L.L. stresses when counters are involved.
