Abstract:
ABSTRACT Castellated beams are fabricated by cutting the web of hot rolled steel (HRS) I section into zigzag pattern and thereafter rejoining it over one another. The openings made in the webs are of generally hexagonal, circular, diamond or square in shape. Therefore, considering structural performance of the beam, the size and shape of openings provided in the web are always an important issue of concern.Cross-section dimension, beam slenderness, opening size and opening spacing are found to affect the stiffness of the analytical load-deflection curve. The parametric study of the FE stiffness and normalized stiffness is conducted. The stress distribution of the finite element (FE) model reveals the strut stress in the web-post contributes to the increasing deflection in addition to the regular bending deflection. The deformation of the web-post and the relative movement between the upper and lower tee-sections due to strut stress is the main reason of the additional deflection in the cellular beams. The effect of the strut stress is found to be significant for the deflection of the short-span beams but less for the long-span beams. In this project the cellular beams with different configurations are analysed using FEM ANALYSIS in Ansys software and the results obtained are discussed Keywords: Finite Element, Analysis, Cellular beam, Ansys
