In compression zone it is 16t & tension zone it is 12t.

16t for steel sections and 12t for flats where t is the thickness of the section or flat.

For flats:12t in compression and 20t in tension.
For angles 256tf/fy^0.5.

Compression - 16t.

Tension- 20t.

The outstand of web stiffeners in the terms of thickness is 12t.

The outstand of a web stiffener should not be greater than 256t/fy^0.5 for angle section and 12t for flats.

t = thickness of a flat.

For tension, it is 20t not 12t.
