Roof trusses are generally used in industrial buildings. There are many types of truss available for the construction of roof truss. Analysis and design an economical and stable 2D truss for the usage in industrial purpose like storage rooms, workshops, warehouses etc., using STAAD. Pro.Vi8. It follows the method of design steps of steel truss type structures as per the guidelines of IS: 800-2007 and IS: 875-1987 part 1, 2 and 3 codes and certain amount of decision based on engineering judgments / practices and information from past experiences. In the present study, howe type of truss has been taken using various span and rise. Four different spans such as 7m, 14m, 21m and 28m have been taken into consideration. Four rise criteria such as, L/3, L/4 and L/5 are taken. Angle section and Tube section have been compared for particular span and rise. Analysis was done using STAAD- Pro software and various results had been obtained. The safe and economical steel section was decided on the weight obtained of each truss after the analysis.
