This paper focuses on the global design of frame structures, more in particular how joints play an important role in this process. Furthermore attention is paid on how to verify the moment resistance (strength), the rotation rigidity (stiffness) and rotation capacity (deformation capacity) of joints in frames and trusses. The first reaction about the Eurocode 3 from practitioners is that the Eurocodes are very complete but complex to use. As a reaction to that, the paper shows that indeed the Eurocode 3 part 1–8 “Design of Joints” is rather complete but the question remains how to deal with joints which are not easily covered by the Eurocode and that the Eurocode is not complex but indeed it is a lot of work using it.
