1. Introduction
Observation decks have been used for many centuries as ways to create an overhanging platform. Truss structures consist of rigid beams joined together with pin connections. These trusses are always in compression or tension, or in special cases, under zero load. A truss is constructed of triangles connected together, thereby allowing the members to perform more efficiently when put under a constant load. Theoretically a truss should have frictionless joints therefore allowing the members to either be in complete compression or tension throughout the members along the truss. This force is only in theory however, does not occur in any real world situations but majority of the force acting on the members is subjugated to tensile or compressive force. Trusses have a high strength to weight ratio due the then nature of the nature of the force. Therefore less materials are used in the construction process, also reducing the
