Advances on the Influence of Joint Stiffness on Mechanical Behavior of Single-Layer Reticulated Shell
The bolt-ball joints and welded hollow spherical joints are used frequently in the reticulated structures. Many researches on the influence of the bolt-ball joints stiffness on dynamic and static mechanical behavior of these structures are carried out by far. This paper reviews these researches, and points out the limitation as well, then the future work of which has been put forward. In addition, the progress made in our work team in this filed is illustrated.
