I am interested how to check a nominally pined joint. Especially how to check its rotational capacity and whether i can define it as nominally pinned in structural fem model. I understand that there are criteria for nominally p. Joints but also there is a criterium that this joint must have enough of rotational capacity to accept rotation of the member.
I give an example.
Lets say i designed a nominally pinned joint according to eurocode criteria. Ran a calculation and got design forces. (shear force and maybe axial force). Joint satisfied all code checks but now i want to if this joint has rotational capacity to accept members end rotation (also calculated).
I know that there certain amount of estimation and engineering experience. But i would like to know what would do an experienced engineer when designing a joint that has stiffness somewhere between pinned and semirigid. And dont want to define it as semirigid in structural calculation.
