In construction application, the web is usually carry most of the compressive stress and transmits shear in the beam while flanges support the major external loads. Therefore, web is usually investigated by comparing the thickness and the shape. There are various types of profile steel sheeting used in Malaysia, such as Spandek and Trimdek. The introduction of an opening in the web of the beam will alter the stress distribution within the members and also cause its collapse behaviour. Therefore, the effective design of web beam with an opening is always investigated. This project is to develop a finite element analysis in studying the web profile of the beam with openings and stiffener by using LUSAS 14.0. Nine models had been conducted in this project by analyse the linear analysis, stress, strain and buckling shape of beam The dimension of each models arelSOO mm span with 125mm x 550 mm section. Each models subjected to simply supported test The type of mesh are Quadrilateral Thin Shell with 4 nodes (QTS4) for each model. The results show that Spandek Corrugated Web has the highest strength followed by Trimdek Corrugated Web and Fiat Web Beam. Nevertheless, the buckling load analysis shows Trimdek Corrugated Web Beam is the best corrugated to resist linear buckling than Spandek and Flat web beam.
