20. What is a pin-jointed structure in theory

In this lecture we introduce one of the most common forms of structure in the world, the pin-jointed truss. We'll focus on the details of the theoretical models we use in our analyses, discussing the key features of this type of structure and what makes it such an attractive structural form for civil and structural engineers.
