> K of the LRFD spec's is similar. Sidesway web buckling is treated more
generally and accurately in the 1993 LRFD Specification. Specifically, the
effects of the flexural load level in the beam to which the limit state is
applied is considered. For a large moment (i.e., a moment greater than the
yield moment), there is a reduction in the local strength to resist sidesway web
buckling. In LRFD, this means a moment greater than FySx. In ASD, the
corresponding limit above which a similar reduction would apply is
0.6FySx.
