Hexagonal structures are the man made or natural structures. It has the geometry of a honeycomb to allow minimize the amount of material to reach the maximal weight and minimal material cost. Its objective is to design and analyze the new concept of hexagonal framed truss that is alternate to the normal Pratt type trusses. This concept explains the study of comparative and efficiency of the normal triangle trusses and hexagonal trusses. The project deals with the shape of the structure that

Structural analysis is the determination of the effects of loads on physical structures. The results of such an analysis typically include deformation, stresses and displacements. This hexagonal framed steel structure may used in bridge frame, roof truss and more. The aim of our project is to construct a hexagonal framed steel bridge to reduce the usage of material, cost and to take the maximal load to the structure. Our main motive is to construct the economical bridge and to save the material used.
