Abstract: Constant experiments are conducted by structural engineers to develop better designs to impose desired qualities to the structure. Thus engineers came up with the idea of castellated steel beam. Since CSB consists of hollow portions it is important to assure its strength & load carrying capability. One of the method to improve the properties is by providing stiffeners. Finite element analysis is conducted by providing stiffeners inside the castellation and also by providing stiffeners along with spacer plates.
