Description This research thesis focuses on the application of structural topology optimization techniques to design steel perforated I-sections as a first attempt to replace the traditional cellular beams and better understand the mechanisms involved when subjected to bending and shear actions. An optimum web opening configuration is suggested based on the results of parametric studies. A FE analysis is further employed to determine the performance of the optimized beam in comparison to the conventional widely used cellular type beam. It is found that the optimized beam overperforms in terms of load-carrying capacities, deformations, and stress intensities. Barriers to the implementation of the topology optimization technique to the routine design of beam web are highlighted
