RE: Bolted Moment Connections

Tom Murray has some publications about bolted end plates.  The 3 hinged arches used in prefab metal buildings uses a bolted end plate moment splice at the eaves.  Be careful in calculating the flexibility contribution of the plates for deflection.

Does anyone have any recommendations/ concerns with using a bolted end 
plate moment connection at the ridge for a custom designed rigid frame.  
I am using W27 x 84's for the girders and looking at a 4 tension bolt end 
plate design.  My roof slope is 3:12.  Also is there any guidelines I 
could refer to.
