The papers delivers a new computational method of statical analysis of frames, well suited for both the 2D and 3D settings and easily generalizable to the case of the presence of big axial forces. The method is based on the compatibility equations which have their roots in the force method, while the unknowns refer to the displacement method. These equations involve also the unknown cross sectional forces which are the force method unknowns. The method proposed can be viewed as the displacement method with an implicit procedure of deriving the stiffness equations.
