From a seminar at the Zimmerer Kompetenz Zentrum in Kassel

I did a google search for typs of rafters and found 1. common rafters, 2. jack rafters 3. Valley rafters and 4. hip rafters. So, are Strahlenschifter any of those?
They are apparently ??? rafters edged and ??? rafters stripped. Is there such a thing as rafters edged?

radial rafters
Explanation:
I think these might be rafters that radiate outward from a central point.

The first floor joists, as well as the heavy (mostly 5" x 10" pine) rafters, are supported by the external walls (cordwood or block) at their outer ends, the masonry mass at the center, and the octagon post-and-beam frame halfway between. This is called a radial rafter system. Actually, only half of the 32 rafters or joists go all the way to the center. Sixteen of them stop at the octagon.
