Abstract

Nowadays, with the development of cutting and welding technologies, steel beams with regular circular openings, called cellular beams, have been widely used for construction. The cellular beams could be designed either as steel beam or composite beam when headed shear connectors connect concrete slab to top flange of steel beam. This paper presents a procedure to design cellular composite beams according to EN 1994-1-1. In addition, a parametric study is carried out to evaluate the influence of circular opening geometry to ultimate load and failure mode of a series of cellular composite beams. As a result, an optimal dimension of cellular beam is proposed.
