You may be able to use the type of connections that has a strap that clamps on both flanges so the connection can't move perpendicular to the beam. Parallel to the beam it will still be a friction connection.

Check with the approvals from OSHPD for just these kind of connections. We did something like this at a high school a few years ago.Neil n 1/14/2014 1:44 PM, lrhauer(--nospam--at)earthlink.net wrote:To All,I am providing some vertical water pipe supports where we would like to use "Beam Clamps" to the bottom flange of an existing wide flange beam, (in a building). Even though they are rated by "B-Line" for a maximum horizontal force, it appears they rely on friction only and I vaguely remember friction connections not being allowed for seismic applications.Any thoughts, or can someone direct me to the IBC/CBC or ASCE section that doesn't allow friction connections?Thanks in Advance,
