Abstract

INTRODUCTION The purpose of this phase of the research has been to investigate the flexural behavior of C-shaped members with web openings. Three common industry standard C-sections were tested as outlined in the first progress report. The web openings were located at 24 inches on center as illustrated in Fig. 1. Each test specimen was subjected to two point loads until the ultimate flexural strength of the member was obtained. This report summarizes the test procedure and results of the research to date.
