The paper opens by reviewing the effort devoted to research in relation to expenditure in the construction industry and compares this with other industries. It shows that a
substantial sum is spent on structural engineering research and that, while there may be a need for further effort, it is essential for the present scale of effort to be closely co-ordinated and directed at real problems.
As is customary at the first Ordinary Meeting ofthe New Year, the meeting at the Institution at 6 o’clock on Thursday 9 January 1969 will take the form of an open discussion.
The paper describes tests on seven simply supported steel-concrete composite T-beams using welded studs as the means of shear connection. All the beams tested had the same cross section and each was tested to failure using a centre point load. Part l of the paper examines the effect of varying the connector spacing upon the general behaviour of the beams, whilst Part 2 examines the effect of varying the amount of transverse reinforcement in the slab.
