I am doing a stability and proportioning check of an opening in a beam web. The opening width to opening depth ratio is greater than is recommended. If I was to place vertical plate stiffeners at some spacing o.c. in between the opening width, and welding it to the top and bottom flange of the beam, will this resolve the instability/proportioning check of the beam? Thanks.
