Influence compliance of node connections are not taken into account fully in the existing calculation methods. Basically, this is because of insufficient three-dimensional interference knowledge of elements of thin-walled steel frames. In practice, the structural analysis of the LSTC is usually made with the help of design diagrams with articulated or rigid joints connection elements, therefore, real behavior of structure is not taken into account, as the compliance units may lead to substantial redistribution efforts. Researches in clarifying the design diagrams allow to calculate the steel thin-walled structures with more accuracy and to improve the economic efficiency of design solutions. Thus, the purpose of the study is to determine the qualitative and quantitative characteristics on the basis of experimental and numerical studies that affect the loss of local stability in joints, taking into account the compliance of node connections.
