You can call J.C. Gerardy at TradeArbed (212) 486-9890.  They have the   
patent of the dog-bone moment connection but have released it to the   
public domain.  He can provide you with literature and test information   
done by Smith-Emery.

     away from the column/connection.

     I saw the two articles in Modern Steel construction and tried the
     AISC web site without luck.

     Los Angeles City and County require, among other things, that you

     information is not proprietary as is some of the information on the
     other tested connections such as the SSDA Slot, IFC Kaiser, or the

     Any leads on web sites, people, phone numbers, E-Mails, etc. would
