This requires generic beam-column connections be designed to adequately
support the assumed maximum capacity of the beam in question.
ie., it assumes that the beam is sized such that it is uniformly loaded and
it's section modulus is exactly that required by analysis.
In practice, this method of connection design can result in grossly
oversized (if deflection or construction requirements govern the beam
design) or grossly undersized (if the beam supports a concentrated load near
