Abstract

Web openings could be used in cold-formed steel beam members, such as wall studs or floor joints, to facilitate ease of services in buildings. In this paper, a combination of tests and nonlinear finite element analyses is used to investigate the effect of such holes on web crippling under interior-one-flange (IOF) and end-one-flange (EOF) loading condition; the cases of both flanges fastened and unfastened to the bearing plates are considered. A non-linear finite element model is described, and the results compared against the laboratory test results; a good agreement was obtained in terms of both strength and failure modes.
