Truss - how are forced transfered

  • #1
I'm having problems with truss. Is there like a simulation or animation which shows me how the forces are being transfered. I need to mentally visualize what's going on before i start to calculate. I'm doing really bad.. need help~

i'm going over truss by cutting and by piece or frame ..
