General Procedure for the Analysis of Simple Trusses using the Method of Joints. If a truss is in equilibrium, then each of its joints must also be in equilibrium. Start with joints where there are only 3 unknowns force/reaction. The primary benefit of the method of sections is that, for a determinate truss, you can find the force in any individual member quickly without having to solve through the entire truss one joint at a time (which you must do when using the method of joints). 1316 4.1 Types of truss Generally the form selected for a truss depends upon the purpose for which it is required.
