"The purpose of this study was to analyze a Vierendeel Truss and determine the effect of haunches on moments. Loads were applied at the interior panel points in sequence. The classic slope-deflection method with coefficients taken from a table of frame constants (8) was used for the analysis.
In this investigation, one effect of haunches was determined to be the distribution of moments more evenly throughout the structure. Also, they insure rigidity of the joints and increase architectural flexibility"--Abstract, page ii.
