 Summary:
 This paper describes the behaviour of the longitudinally unstiffened web plate due to patch loading. The basis of the study are possibilities for numerical modelling of girder and comparison with experimental tests. Patch loading resistance is determined by nonlinear analysis using geometrical and material nonlinear analysis. Numerical model is created using finite element package. Based on the experimental tests the real initial geometric imperfections are taken into account and implemented in numerical model and compared with other shapes of the initial imperfections. The numerical simulations are compared to results from three experimental tests on welded I-shaped girders.
