Research in the Behavior Shear Connectors [B4]

Shear connectors are commonly used to join concrete decks and steel superstructures, providing a mechanism for shear transfer across the steel-concrete interface. The resulting composite steel-concrete section has added strength over the sum of its individual components. This session will present results from an ongoing experimental and numerical study into the behavior of headed shear studs. Additionally, an overview of large- and small-scale fatigue tests constructed with steel beams and precast concrete deck panels will be discussed.
