It is actually the second time you have agreed with Bill in the last couple of weeks! What's next? A Kennedy marrying a repulican? Sounds like something from an Arnold movie!

What is the context? Are you working for a metal building manufacturer?

My first impression would be that it means not to have a non-prismatic
portion at the end of the beam (at the connection).

For example, see this link:

I have a clause in a spec. that states 'Beam to column moment connections
shall not be designed with a haunch unless otherwise noted on the drawings."

Can someone define 'haunch'?

This project is in Texas if that makes a difference.
