### Principles Du Devers Traite A LA Sauterelle

I was checking my Roof Framing Geometry Proposition – Axioms against Patrick Moore's Principles Du Devers Traite A LA Sauterelle drawing on this page at Historical Carpentry . My Roof Framing Geometry Proposition – Axioms work with his techniques for Devers De Pas, but mind require a rafter depth to determine some of the lines. Patrick's techniques are in theory only in that drawing, showing the principles of the art of line. No width or depth of the rafters are required for his drawing.

Sauterelle means using a bevel square to transfer the angles from the geometric layout to the timber.

Using Trigonometry to check the geometry for Sauterelle Angles
Initial Given Values:
Hip Rafter Section Profile = Square
```Roof Eave Angle = 90.00000
SS = Main Rafter Slope Angle = 45.00000
S = Adjacent Rafter Slope Angle = 45.00000
DD = Main Plan Angle = 45.00000
D = Adjacent Plan Angle = 45.00000
R1 = Hip Rafter Slope Angle = 35.26439
C5m Main Hip Rafter Backing Angle = 30.00000
C5a Adjacent Hip Rafter Backing Angle = 30.00000
P2m = Main Jack Rafter Side Cut Angle = 35.26439
90° - P2m = Main Roof Sheathing Angle = 54.73561
P2a = Adjacent Jack Rafter Side Cut Angle = 35.26439
90° - P2a = Adjacent Roof Sheathing Angle = 54.73561```
Hip Rafter Section Profile View Rotation Angle = 45°
```
```
```Hip Rafter Foot Calculations by Joe Bartok
```
```FA-DP = Hip Rafter Footprint Angle in Plan View = arctan (sin 35.26439° × tan 45°) = 30.00°

```
```R1-DP = Hip Rafter Slope Angle on DP Shoulder = arccos (cos 35.26439° × cos
30.00°) = 45.00°```
```
```
```Vertical Plane Rotation Angle from Plumb for Tilted Hip Rafter on DP Line
R1V-DP = arctan(1 ÷ (tan(R1) ÷ sin(FA-DP)))
R1V-DP = arctan(1 ÷ (tan(35.26439°) ÷ sin(30.00°))) = 35.26439°
```
