RE: hole in steel web

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I saw an interesting way of stiffening such a hole - place a steel pipe thru
the cut hole and weld it all around to the web of the beam. For holes which
are not too large relative to the beam depth, this seems like a simple way
to stiffen the beam locally.
