Pin connections for static structures include any type of connection that behaves approximately like a true pin e.g. angle cleat, flexible end plate. This 1985 paper is concerned with pinned joints used as an alternative to structural connection where any rotation is minimal and primarily to elastic deformation of the members. Also included is a paper discussing engineering and economy. Rivezzi, G.
