Space trusses consist of bars tubular section linking in the 3D form in the end members. There are several types of connections to attach these members. The most popular is the staking endflattened connection. The reduced cost and the fast assemblage of the truss are among the advantages of the staking end-flattened connection on 3D trusses. However, such connections present disadvantages like eccentricities and stiffness weakening of the tubular members. Several accidents in space structures using this type of connection have also been reported in Brazil. This research presents suggestions to ensure greater safety for truss structures that use the typical node. It is proposed, initially, the use of reinforcement and constructive correction in the connection in order to increase its capacity. The bases for this are the reduction in the eccentricity and the increase in the rigidity of the typical node connection. In this work, based on computer simulations after experimental lab tests, small changes on the staking end-flattened connections such as reinforcement and eccentricity correction are evaluated. The results show an increase of 68% for local collapse and 17% for global collapse in the truss load carrying capacity when the suggested changes proposed in this article are used for the staking end-flattened connections.
