Rectilinear plane and space frame with elastic connections occur in building frames and with diagonal bracings they also occur in scaffolding. The matrix stiffness analysis of linear elastic connections related to every possible displacement at the end of each member. Correction matrices are also derived for modifying the usual rigid joint analysis. Examples are given of the elastic analysis of a plane framework and a simple space portal allowing for various elastic connections at the ends of some or all of the members.
