Abstract:

Results of testing of composite beams in which concrete slab and steel beam act as integral unit; function of shear connection between slab and steel beam is to resist horizontal shear between slab and beam and to prevent uplift of slab from beam; results show that simplicity and ease of installation make round stud connecting superior to other connecting devices.
