Homework Statement:

Hi, anyone know whether full depth end plate between beam web and column is moment or simple connection ? In https://www.steelconstruction.info/Moment_resisting_connections#Welded_beam-to-column_connections and SCI P398, it's considered as moment connection, In SCI P358 and https://www.steelconstruction.info/Simple_connections#Flexible_end_plate_connections, it's considered as simple connection.

Relevant Equations:

Not available
I Think it's moment connection. Because the end plate must be able to resist the moment transferred from the beam to the column. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I believe that you are correct.
Any bending moment on the beam will be transferred to the column.
