RE: hole in steel web

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What you will be concerned with depends on where the hole is vertically as
well as along the length of the member. AISC has both publications and
software to aid in design of what is called web opening in steel beams.

Good luck.
