Abstract
A modified Serrurier truss was designed to support a beam collapser for the USNO Optical Interferometer. The truss was designed to maintain the primary and secondary mirrors within the allowed specified optical and stress tolerances under gravity, wind, thermal, and earthquake loading. A NASTRAN finite element model and closed-form equations were developed to design the truss members.
