Abstract

INTRODUCTION The purpose of this research project has been to investigate the flexural behavior of C-shaped members with web openings. Three common industry standard C-sections have been studied as summarized in the First and Second Progress Reports. To date two testing sequences have been completed. Test sequence No.1 investigated sections with web openings fabricated from nominally low yield strength material. Test sequence No.2 examined sections both with and without web openings. Specimens in test sequence No. 2 have nominally higher yield strengths. This report summarizes the test procedure and results of the research to date.
