Flange Tip Thickness

What in the world is the difference between "full flange tip thickness" and "half flange tip thickness"? I'm guessing 50%, but 50% of what? What's a flange tip thickness??

I figured it out.

The flange tip thickness is the thickness of the flange tip. Silly me.

The full vs. half thickness refers to the fact that some flanges are tapered and others are a uniform thickness.

I guess I'm not a structural engineer. . .
