The displacement analysis and static force and torque analysis are derived. The forces are shown to be statically indeterminate by a degree of three. An experiment is undertaken to check on the validity of the assumed vanishing of force components. For the particular joint tests this assumption was not valid. Based on the displacement analysis, which includes the axial sliding at the joints in the presence of manufacturing errors, optimum tolerances can be determined in the design stage.
