The following is loosely based upon guidance in AISC's "A Guide to Engineering and Quality Criteria for Steel Structures: Common Questions Answered." If you can tolerate a slightly larger cope depth and length, you can reform the corner of the cope by removing additional material to provide a smooth transition. The removal does not have to meet the sides of the cope tangentially. Actually, you'd be better off not trying to meet it tangentially, since can often result in a notch. Remove notches that do result in the cut surface by grinding. If hand-flame-cut in the field, there may be a lot of notches to grind.
