I have a question about beam extended end plate connection. I designed the beam connection with extended end plate (extended 1" at top and bottom flanges). For the geometry reason, there are no bolts beyond beam flanges (see attachment). I distributed the axial loads according the flange and web cross-sectional area. Is the method right? And where can I find the theory in manual or guides? Please suggestion. Thanks
