Abstract: 

This paper presents a study on behavior of cold formed steel (CFS) beam with plain web, triangular corrugated web and trapezoidal corrugated web. This study involves in examination of theoretical and experimental investigations of specimens in series. Overall three specimens were tested with length of 1200 mm. All specimens are tested under two point loading with simply supported condition. The theoretical data are calculated using Indian Standard code IS 801-1975. The load carrying capacity and failure modes of beams were discussed. Based on the test beam with trapezoidal corrugated web shows maximum load carrying capacity compared with the plain web.
