Steel building with hip roof explanation
What is a hip roof?
A roof which slopes from all four sides of a building. The line where two adjacent sloping sides intersect is called the 'hip'.
A hip roof consists of two hip ends built up of
flat top hip trusses in a step down system as illustrated below. In this
system, the common trusses are located between the two hip ends and the
height of the hip trusses is decreased with each subsequent truss beyond
peak of the hip. Hip ends are usually built from the end up starting
with a multi ply hip girder.
