The paper presents an analysis of the tests of the shear resistance of the wavy web of SIN cantilever girders with support stiffeners, with particular emphasis on failure in the post limit zone. Experimental tests were carried out on ten girders with web heights of 500, 1000, 1250 and 1500 mm. The girders with the static scheme of a simply supported beam with a one-sided cantilever were built from samples connected butt-together with prestressed bolts. The failure modes of girders and the load - displacements paths were analyzed along with their direct impact on the form of behavior in the post limit zone. The value of the load corresponding to the formation of a tension diagonal in the web connecting the extreme points of the frame in the post limit state was estimated at a level ranging from 0,39 to 0,67 of the limit load.
