- Do gussets (horizontally oriented) perform well in cantilever bending?

Do gussets perform well in cantilever bending when horizontally oriented, as opposed to vertically oriented? I assume vertical orientation performs well in bending, in which you can calculate the area moment of inertia by adding that of the gusset cross sections individually, and the joint helps with geometric stability. But how would you calculate the effective area moment of inertia for bending when the gussets are horizontal?
