Binary trees are also very interesting, but don't apply here as the nested set model used by Redmine is not a binary tree at all.

Issues in Redmine can be put in a tree structure, but tree structures are not easily stored in SQL. One way to store trees in SQL is called nested set, which is the way Redmine stores trees in SQL.

Regarding your specific question, I think the examples in the Wikipedia page linked above and this article by Mark Hillyer (look for "The Nested Set Model" and "Retrieving a Full Tree" within that) should answer it. You need to sort your the results of your query by lft to make sure that all the childs of a given parent immediately follow that parent.

... and I had always thought that a nested set always represented a binary tree...

But I want sort by with rank of issue.Rank is new column which I add into table issue.
Example: Issue A(id = 1, rank = 2) has two sub issue:issue a1(id=2, rank = 2), issue a2(id:3 rank 1); Issue B(id = 4, rank = 1).in current, (issue.descendants.visible.sort_by(&:lft)) =>[A,a1,a2,B]
I wan to sort with rank not id: B,A,a2,a1
I canno't find solution to resolve my problem!!!Please help me!Thanks all!

You cannot sort by lft / in a tree and another column in a simple query. I'm not sure what you'd need to query to get that.
