I'm using Section F1 of the AISC Manual, 3rd edition, to analyze a 3/8" x 8" rectangular plate in bending about its major axis: it is subject to lateral torsional buckling.
If your meant Chapter F1, not Appendix F1, it is for compact and noncompact sections only. Did you check whether the web is at least noncompact, or is this check - web local buckling check- not necessary for plates?
