A physics articulation is a set of Articulation Bodies organized in a logical tree, in which each parent-child relationship reflects mutually constrained relative motion.
The main purpose of physics articulations is to provide a realistic physics behavior for industrial and commercial non-gaming applications that involve jointsA physics component allowing a dynamic connection between Rigidbody components, usually allowing some degree of movement such as a hinge.

See in Glossary. For example, they make it a lot easier than the regular Joints to simulate robotic arms and kinematic chains.
