Abstract: Castellated beams are made from the conventional I section by the process named as Castellation Process. As of late, broad examination on these castellated steel beams has been directed, including various shapes in web openings. The primary objective of these examination works was to assess and dissect its ideal opening sizes and shapes arrangement. For the most part castellated beam are given hexagonal, round and square formed openings. The finite element investigation is most favored technique for comprehension the flexural strength of castellated beams. In this examination, experimental and numerical displaying approach is utilized for deciding spacing between openings on hexagonal castellated beam. ANSYS software was utilized for the investigation. Opening edge 60o with various opening dispersing 0.15d and 0.25d have beam utilized. Investigation was selected steel beam with and without web openings of ISMB 150 and solid ISMB200 section. Results demonstrated that the castellated bar with hexagonal opening indicated more load carrying capacity and less significant deflection contrasted with solid beam.
