Abstract:

Tests were made in a jig of the single specimen type in which the specimen is free to collapse without developing diagonal tension. Lightening holes were circular and had either flanged or beaded edges. A web with beaded holes will carry more load or at least the same load as the flanged hole webs. The web with flanged holes can be made more efficient by using larger holes, while the size of the bead effectively limits the size of the hole.
