Several factors influence the stability of concrete structures, such as building height, structural components’ rigidity, bracing system, beam-wall connection rigidity, among others. Global structural stability is evaluated according to NBR 6118/2014 by the α e γz parameters. This article aims to evaluate the global structural stability concrete structures considering the eccentricity of the beam-wall connections. With the aid of software Abaqus© and TQS©, reticulated models were analyzed to evaluate the contribution of the eccentricity of the beam-wall connections on the global stability and the rigidity of the connections. The geometric nonlinear effects were disregarded in these analyses. The stability parameters from NBR6118/2014 were evaluated in the frame models, as well as the flexibilization criteria from the TQS© software, LEPMOL e REDMOL. The results of the displacement analysis show an increase of 26.45%, comparing the centered connection to the more eccentric connection.
