Abstract The shear buckling behavior of the web-post in a castellated steel beam with fillet corner hexagonal web openings is studied using the finite element method. The buckling modes and buckling capacity of the web-post in the castellated beam with fillet corner hexagonal web openings are compared with those having circular and elongated circular openings. The web-post in a castellated steel beam with the proposed opening shape can achieve as good structural performance as that with… CONTINUE READING
