In civil engineering applications, hollow section beams are extensively used mainly in the construction industry and offshore structures. After several years of usage, the structures undergo damage and suffer corrosion thus requiring regular maintenance. One of the methods to rectify this problem is mulling with grout in the steel hollow sections. This study is to determine the flexural behavior of grout-filled steel hollow section beams in offshore applications. The characteristics of the grout-filled steel beams which include high ductility, strength, and greater energy absorption capacity have made these composite beams become popular in civil engineering. Extensive research works to study the capacity of grout-filled steel beams have been carried out. However, studies on the behavior of grout-filled steel beams under flexural cyclic load have not been observed in the literature where such problem can arise when the moment induced during earthquakes and the vibration of the machineries could cause some effects on the beams which would reduce the service life of the beams. In the present study, therefore an attempt has been made to study the behavior of grout-filled steel beams subjected to flexural cyclic load under different parameters which include the D/t ratio and also the stiffness of the beams which would affect the bonding strength of the grout with the beams. The relationship between the different strength of flexural cyclic load and the number of'cycles to failure would be investigated.
