The aim of this study is to determine the optimal shape and clearance of the web openings in order to both increase the carrying capacity and decrease the weight of classic perforated beams by using evolutionary topological optimization technique. The effects of the optimal shape and web openings has been obtained by the application of the evolutionary topological optimization through finite elements method, and then the obtained optimal beam has been compared with widely used perforated beamsdoi:10.53600/ajesa.1177628 fatcat:c7d6r3cui5f2vb6c7jkqdmz6qu
