Abstract
One of the disadvantages of building with tubular structures lies in executing rigid or semi-rigid joints. Up to date, the most reliable way to solve these joints is by welding; this would not be a problem if the entire welding could be done at workshop, since the available precision is much higher than in the worksite. In order to solve this problem, a new high-rise solution is proposed and analyzed in this study. The proposal is based on inserting one tube into a wider one (working as a bracke...
