Subject: Torsional Constant

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.
 
 
 
 
Question-
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?
