    Does anyone know a method for calculating the scantling of Tee-Section?
    I have calculated the design pressure and the section modulus of the girder.
    What is the next step?

    Have you studied structural design and second moment of inertia calculations of shapes?

    You have probably used a certain rulebook to calculate the right pressure. Well, that same regulation will have a formula to define the minimum admissible value of the elastic section modulus of the girder. And don't forget to include the stiffener's attached plate when calculating that modulus.

    And just for info, if you are not using a set of rules, a typical accepted value for effective plating flange width is 20 times the plating thickness.
