Reeno is on a distinguished road

I am new to this and I'm trying to figure out how to calculate the appropriate diameter for the frame bars and diagonals in a Warren truss overhead structure.

I'd like to calculate this based on signs that will be placed on the overhead structure.
Further I'd like to take the wind load on the signs, weight and size of the signs in to account. The placement of the signs and the height, size and width of the steel truss.

Does anyone have a guide on how to do these calculations?
