    In plate girder, flanges are designed for resist bending moment. And webs are designed for resist shear force. Due to bending moment , section is subjected to compression and tension stressed. These stress produced vertical or horizontal shear on plate girder. Vertical force is resisted by web and horizontal shear is resisted by flange. In built up section flange is connected by web by welded or rivet connections. So rivet are also designed for horizontal section
