This paper develops a finite-element model using ANSYS for the buckling analysis of perforated beams and uses it to investigate the effects of slenderness on the moment-gradient factor of simply supported perforated web beams. Web post buckling is studied by using numerical model. An investigation on steel beams with various shapes and sizes is reported based on web post buckling. A parameter study was conducted based on web post width and the effect of various openings is described.
