Hey, To solve the inclined trusses, Methods of joints is the appropriate method. With the help of this, one can easily identify the force in respective member of truss.
But before solving the truss, some points should be kept in mind and these are listed below :-
1. If two members are meeting at joint, with no external force acting on them, then forces in both the members will be zero.
2. If the magnitude of force will come positive then force will be considered as Tensile And if magnitude of force will come negative then force will be considered Compressive.
3. If two members are collinear then force in the third member ,connected but not in straight line with two members, will be zero: F3 = zero
