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.
transm] = 3000 kN/m (equivalent to rigid joint
stiffness), minimum [K.
As can be seen, the rails deflected somewhat more than rigid joint
theory predicts but much less than simply supported theory predicts.
1 900 kg, - hot dip galvanizing of steel components, - joining of frame corners by welding 24 times, - joining by means of rigid joints

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.
