How can a displacement of bars in a certain connection point be taken into account?


There are basically two options here:

  • The use of rod eccentricities, see technical contribution Consideration of rod and surface eccentricities
  • In the case of, for example, differently defined rod end joints in combination with different dimensions of offsets, the use of couplings or rigid rods may help, see Figure 1
