Trusses is one of most usable structures in engineering. Truss is combination of bar elements created. Triangle shape is most stable possible are formed by bar elements in truss. In this research, with using statistical analyses methods effects of per parameters such as material, diameter of bar, applied force to joints, combination of interior angles in vertical and horizontal displacement in Pratt truss have been evaluated. For this purpose, 45 models in Sigma/w analyzed. Then, statistical analyses on data’s by using SPSS program have been performed and continuity of parameters with considering of displacement in joints was evaluated. In finally, a relationship for estimation of maximum displacement in joints of truss has proposed. Results of this study showed that in single parameter mode, a scenario with combination bar diameter, elastic modulus and angles between elements results much better than scenario with considering force in joints. According to results of Pearson test it can be explained that maximum displacement in joints have liner direct relationship with diameter, elastic modulus, applied force and angle between elements.
