I use the term haunch to refer to beam-to-column moment connects which are tapered… such as a metal building system frame where the rafter and column webs increase in depth uniformly as they approach the connection. Omer Blodgett uses the term haunch in the same way in “Design of Welded Structures”… one of my favorite references.
I would require “no haunch” where clearance below the rafter or appearance is critical.
I assume this is what I normally call a "bracket" or a shelf that the beam would bear on. Perhaps this is prevent interference with mechanical or architectural items.
