In cold-formed steel structures, the bending strength of beams can be improved by adding longitudinal stiffeners to web elements. This study deals with the required minimum rigidity of the longitudinal stiffeners and the ultimate bending capacity of cold-formed steel beams having adequately stiffened webs.
