I have seen many connections from the meal building design engineers for
bolted end plate connections that do not use the design method outlined in
AISC. They typically eliminate the extended end plate beyond the top flange
and use only one line of bolts on the inside of the flange to resist the
flange tension forces. I have not seen documentation for this type of
connection and suspect that it is somewhat "proprietary", being developed
and tested by the individual building manufacturers. Maybe this is the type
of connection that Nguyen Hoai Nam originally inquired about. I, too, would
be interested in the resources for that type of a connection.
