The growing popularity of the use of cellular steel beams in composite floors comes at the same time as an increasing attention to the fire safety engineering design. The recommendation for their design in fire limit states remains very primitive and this is due to the lack of general research in this area. Four composite cellular steel beams were tested at the University of Ulster with two models of different steel geometries and loading conditions under monotonic loading and at elevated temperatures. This paper presents a finite element model and simple hand calculation methods to calculate the shear buckling at the web post, the bending resistance in fire, deflection and temperature distribution in the cross section of composite cellular beams.
