Due to the technological reasons in modern lightweight steel trusses, fabricated from cold-formed sections, positive eccentricities appear in the truss nodes what induce additional forces in the truss chords. To account for the real load-carrying capacity of truss node area the steel structure research in scale 1:1 were conducted. The experiments consisted of two parts: preliminary and proper one, when conclusions from the first part were applied. Carrying out preliminary studies helped to identify of the research station drawbacks and eliminate most of them, what ensure the appropriate research results. The initial numerical analysis were also conducted what was presented in the paper.
