LBS – Field Splice Capacity Check - Shear Rupture of splice plate on net section area for web plate.

Good afternoon, previously you explained how to enter Vp to initialize shear resistance when designing web splice connections.

Could you please explain if LEAP calculates the horizontal force in the web that exceed the moment resistance provided by flanges?  AASHTO

Or if LEAP designs the flanges to take the whole force and the web has to be designed just for the smaller factored shear resistance?
