RE: Joist Girder Connection

Paul,

Moment connections at the ends of girder trusses are routine in areas of low
seismicity. It makes up the lateral force resisting system.

Richard,

Forgive me if I am reading your question incorrectly, but isn't the typical
knife plate connection you refer to for stability only, not a moment
connection.  In my experience the plate is not attached to the girder bottom
chord at all.
