Web Yielding / Crippling Design Sheet

Web yielding is the compressive crushing of a beam web caused by the application of acompressive force to the flange directly above or below the web. This force could be an. end reaction from a support of the type shown in Figure below, or it could be a load. delivered to the top flange by a column or another beam.

Web crippling is a term used in architectural and structural engineering to indicate when a cold-formed steel plate buckles or bends because it is too thin to support a given load. Web crippling occurs when the plate on steel girders buckles due to heavy loads.
