Tests on Half-Scale Steel-Concrete Composite Beams with Welded Stud Connectors

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.
