Nevertheless the codes are at least silent regarding alternative moment connection details. Even when there's a site specifically designed to cover these issues (, the amount of technical information provided about test results makes this site a little hard to follow.

After the Northridge earthquake, the design philosophy of moment

on "REINFORCED MOMENT CONNECTION" where the beam flange is stiffened
by use of varieties of detailing schemes.
you can find some of this detailing schemes in the following doc.
1. fema document, 90% draft,
50% draft is available in SAC web site.
