Has anyone ever designed a "tilted" diaphragm plate moment connection where the beam coming into the the column is tilted (beam is perpendicular to the roof deck)so it matches the slope of the roof deck ( flange is tilted from left to right) and the top of the column is cut to match the slope of the roof as well? Similar to a cape plate column connection which is cut to match the slope of the roof. I have seen it skewed and sloped coming into the column but I haven't seen it where the beam is tilted coming into the column.
