 ES&T Online News: Measuring knuckle cracks
The tank's "knuckle" is the weakest part of the tank and difficult to assess.

Government regulations mandate that these double-walled tanks be inspected, but no technology was previously available to “see” the crack-prone “knuckle” region near the bottom of the tanks where the wall meets the floor.

 eMedicine - Knuckle Pads : Article Excerpt by: Cheryl J Barnes, MD
The name knuckle pad seems to be a misnomer because in most reported cases, lesions occur over the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint, not over the knuckles.
Pathophysiology: Knuckle pads may be idiopathic, genetic, acquired as a response to repetitive trauma, or associated with several other acquired conditions.
Measurement of prevalence of knuckle pads is difficult because patients are asymptomatic and do not seek medical attention for them.

 Medical/knuckle cracking
The scant literature that is available on this topic indicates that habitual knuckle cracking may have a direct effect on the soft tissue of the hands and there is a case study that indicates it may also cause damage that leads to radiologic change (17).
Because the average duration of the knuckle cracking habit was 35 +/- 18 years, the habit seems to have little effect on joint cartilage.
Although the cause of habitual knuckle cracking was not considered in this study, patients admitting to it were more likely to bite their nails, smoke, and drink alcohol, as were members of their families (table 2).

 [Ganoksin] Jewelry Making - Basic Knuckle Options
Two knuckle hinges are not normally functional if built using tubing because the end surfaces (the contact places) of the tube ends in the middle of the hinge are not broad enough to provide sufficient structural strength to hold up in use (this is the voice of experience).
A two knuckle system that works is the traditional forged link one where square stock is forged so that each end goes from broad to narrow thus changing the axis of the hinge pin and allowing the linkage to move well in two directions alternating every two links.
There is the option of leaving some of the knuckles out and exposing the hinge pin as a design element-of interest with a larger hinge pin or one of a different color than the knuckles.

Knuckle Up is basically a series of boss fights in the classic, video game sense.
