End-plate-type joints are widely used in steel frame structures, connecting either two steel elements (like beam-to-column, beam-to-beam or column-to-column joints) or a steel and a concrete/reinforced concrete element (like column-base joints or joints of a steel beam and a reinforced concrete column). Although these joints have numerous practical advantages, their application results in a more complicated structural behaviour which must be considered in the design.
