  2) TRUSS FRAME DESIGN - Overview of truss framing approach for stress-skin/structural sandwich design. a) Material Options – Comparing Steel Options Discussion. b) Truss Design – Visual of Truss Design showing visual of block-frame section followed by surface reinforcing. (The Quick Version we Have) b.i) Block Frame Close Up illustrating 3-D visual of Block Pattern  - (Whole Block, Half Block, Half block, whole-block, Half-block, Half-Block, Whole Block Half block)  This should be a stand-alone Graphic that is framed by the discussion of only the block pattern. b.ii) Surface Reinforcing Close Up – This illustration can just go on top of the 3-D block frame but have the 3-D aspect of the background blocks fade to a simple faded version to better focus on the surface reinforcing pattern and the top chord ribbon.  It should focus on a 5.5 foot (full Block Pattern Run) section of truss to illustrate the exact steel pieces used, how they overlap and how they make the ‘No-Slip’ connection to the adjacent pieces and block frame below.  Two illustrations should be done on one segment being a 7 foot radius section and the other being a 14 foot radius section to illustrate how the radius curve effects the overlap layout on the trusses. b.iii)  Truss Layout – Discusses design of Truss Layout from column to column and secondary trusses that all converge to make triangular pattern with about 8 to 12 Ft^2 in between each truss. c) Bell Column Dome Process (Link)
