A truss is a special belt with a pad that a man wears when he has a hernia in order to prevent it from getting worse. In building construction, a structural frame usually fabricated from pieces of metal or timber to form a series of triangles lying in a single plane.

The horizontal pieces forming the top and bottom of the truss are called the chords, and the sloping and vertical pieces connecting the chords are collectively called the web. Unlike a vault, the truss exerts no thrust but only downward pressure; supporting walls require no buttressing or extra thickening. Trusses have been used extensively in roofing and bridges.
