The paper presents a study of the transverse bending behaviour of corrugated web beam with and without web openings. Examined steel beams consist of two flanges and a thin triangularly corrugated web, connected by automatic welding. In the literature, the influence of web opening over transverse load carrying capacity was dealt with mostly for steel beams with plane, sinusoidal and trapezoidal corrugated webs, so researches of beams with triangularly corrugated webs were found out to be very limited. A parametric study is carried out for various web slenderness and corrugation densities. A general-purpose finite element analysis software ABAQUS was used. The corrugation densities adopted in this study represent practical geometries, which are commonly used for such structures in building practice. Models with and without web openings were analysed and examined in terms of load-deformation characteristics and ultimate web shear resistance. Recommendations are given for the practical design of corrugated web beams weakened by circular openings.
