The nominal moment of the section is calculated from:


Mn = S.Fy
The working (applied) moment is calculated from:
M = Mn / factor of safety = S.[Fy / f.o.s]
Fy / f.o.s depends
on class of section

(1) according to limitations of width to thickness ratio


(pages 9,10,11 and 12 EC-2001):

If the section is compact:


M = Sx0.64F y
M = Sx0.72F y rectangular

If the section is non-compact:


M = Sx 0.58 F y

If the section is slender:


M = Seff x 0.58 F y

(2) according to limitations of lateral unbraced length
