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. Six 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 simple model to calculate the shear buckling at the web post and the bending resistance of composite cellular beams in fire.
