Title: Identification of Nonlinear Joints in a Truss Structure
Authors: Bruno, R. J.
Issue Date: 
Citation: Hilton Head, South Carolina, USA
Abstract: This paper describes a technique to locate and characterize loose joints in a truss structure which are modeled as gaps in the members. The procedure involves prestressing the structure to first eliminate the gaps and then unloading the structure and monitoring a set of displacements.
