  • As with all previous roof

  • We must solve the 1m triangle


Solve 1m triangle example 3a rafter length per plan 1m of travel of rafter in plan
Solve 1m Triangle - Example(3a) Rafter Length per plan 1m of Travel of Rafter in Plan

  • Rafter Length per 1m = 1 ÷ Cos 22.5°

    = 1.082

    (This is the Rafter Multiplier)

22.5°


Solve 1m triangle example 3 b rise per plan 1m travel of rafter in plan
Solve 1m Triangle - Example3(b) Rise per plan 1m Travel of Rafter in Plan

  • Rise = 1 x Tan 22.5°

Lets have a close look at why the Plan Length of Hip is ALWAYS 1.082 for every 1m of Rafter plan length

Calculate Plan Length of Hip

Method 1

Plan Hip Length = √((1/2 Span)² (1/2 Span x 0.414)²)

= 1.082 per 1m of Rafter Plan Length

Solve 1m triangle example 2 c hip rafter plan length per 1m travel of rafter in plan
Solve 1m Triangle - Example2(c) Hip Rafter Plan Length per 1m Travel of Rafter in Plan

= Tan 22.5° x 1

= 1.082

Note – This is always the case regardless of Pitch


Solve 1m triangle example 2 d hip rafter length per 1m travel of rafter in plan
Solve 1m Triangle - Example2(d) Hip Rafter Length per 1m Travel of Rafter in Plan

Hip Length / m = √(0.4142 + 1.0822 )

= √(0.171 + 1.171)

= 1.159

(This is the Hip Rafter Multiplier per 1m of Rafter in plan)

22.5°


Solve 1m triangle example 2 e hip pitch tan 1 rise per metre 1 082
Solve 1m Triangle - Example2(e) Hip Pitch = Tan-1 (Rise per metre ÷ 1.082)

Hip Pitch = Tan-1(RISE ÷ 1.082)

= Tan-1(0.414 ÷ 1.082)

= Tan-1(0.383)

= 20.9° say 21°

    Calculate Plan Length of Hip

    Plan Hip Length = ½ Span ÷ cos 22.5⁰

    = ½ Span ÷ 0.924

    = 1.082 (That it is equal to the Rafter Multiplier is a coincidence in this case)

    This is a fixed relationship
