Quadrangular lattice through truss

View Exhibit map

The quadrangular, or quad-intersecting, lattice truss is a type of Warren truss, and one of the types that is under the heading "lattice truss". One method of identifying it is to locate a main diagonal and count the number of opposing diagonals it crosses. If there are three crossings, then it is likely a quadrangular lattice truss.
