In this paper, the effect of stiffener made with 3D printer to plastic deformation capacity of steel beam is confirmed by loading test. Firstly, plastic deformation capacity and collapse mode of H-shaped steel beam without stiffener is confirmed by FE analysis. Secondly, for improvement of plastic deformation capacity, stiffener made with 3D printer is designed. And then, loading test of H-shaped steel b eam with this stiffener is conducted and effect of t his stiffener is examined by comparing the result of non-stiffened beam.
