Title (EN) JOINING SYSTEM FOR TRIANGULATED STRUCTURES
(FR) SYSTEME D"ASSEMBLAGE POUR STRUCTURES TRIANGULEES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Structural elements for use in triangulated structures, and structures assembled from such elements. In particular the invention provides an elongated structural element for use in a triangulated structural assembly, provided at least one end thereof with connector means adapted for pivotal connection directly to at least one further structural element about a pivot axis which is transverse to the longitudinal axis of the structural element and which is disposed outside the general envelope of the structural element itself. The arrangement is such that from two to as many as one hundred such structural elements may be interconnected at a structural node without the use of an intermediate nodal member.
(FR)Elements a assembler pour structures triangulees, et structures assemblees a l"aide de tels elements. L"invention prevoit notamment un element de structure allonge destine a l"assemblage dans une structure triangulee et dont au moins une extremite est pourvue de moyens de liaison permettant d"assujettir ledit element de facon pivotante a au moins un autre element de structure, l"axe de pivotement presentant une direction transversale par rapport a l"axe longitudinal de l"element de structure et etant dispose a l"exterieur de l"enveloppe generale de 1"element de structure proprement dit. La disposition est telle que deux a cent elements de ce type peuvent etre assembles pour former un noeud de structure sans necessiter l"utilisation d"un element d"assemblage nodal intermediaire.
