      Trusses are statically determinate when the entire bar forces can be determined from the equations of statics alone. Otherwise the truss is statically indeterminate. A truss may be statically (externally) determinate or indeterminate with respect to the reactions (more than 3 or 6 reactions in 2D or 3D problems respectively).   If firefighters suspect that a structure has a roof constructed of I-joists used as rafters (or wood trusses), we should always consider horizontal ventilation a better choice than vertical.
