Consequences of removing rounded edges on hollow profiles

Rectangular hollow sections are often used in structures. When presented with these profiles in FEA one can be tempted to remove the rounded edges but what are the benefits and what are the consequences of doing so? In this article, the second moment of area of the rectangular hollow section will be compared (with and …
