The company noted that these were chosen to provide an approved rigid joint that could be installed easily without the need for on-site welding.
Dry or semi-dry sand/cement brushed into the joint does not provide a truly rigid joint.
5 times, however, due to its geometry; the joint was not sufficiently stiff to satisfy the requirements for a rigid joint.
any hinged connection carries some moment and any rigid joint has some degree of flexibility.
This static joint is unaffected by internal pressure or external loads acting on the flange and behaves as a rigid joint.
As in conventional construction, the rigid joint is made with a full penetration welded connection.
As can be seen, the rails deflected somewhat more than rigid joint theory predicts but much less than simply supported theory predicts.

Tensegrity systems are composed of cables and rigid bars and have the following characteristics: the static stability of the structure is the result of pre-tensioning the cables; the rigid elements (bars) are not connected one to the other and they are subjected only to compression strains; there are no rigid joints in the structure, but articulated joints only.
The method was proposed to use beam type finite elements with semi rigid joints instead of shell or solid elements that simplified the construction behaviour calculations.
The virtual modeling of the studied double wishbone front suspension mechanisms having rigid joints could emphasize the effects of different solutions on the vehicle performances of stability, handling and passenger comfort.
