Abstract: In modern buildings, the openings are provided in beam flanges for ventilation ducts, electrical wirings etc. which may reduce the strength of beams. The objective of current research is to evaluate the strength of I shaped beam with and without web opening using Finite Element Method. The CAD modelling and structural analysis of beam is conducted in ANSYS simulation package. The use of computer simulation package can enable to evaluate the effect of web openings on beams. From the FEA analysis, the critical regions of high stresses and deformation are identified. The incorporation of rectangular web opening in beams caused reduction in strength of beam significantly.
