An Experimental Study of the use of High-Strength Friction-Grip Bolts as Shear Connectors in Composite Beams

The paper describes experiments conducted on the use of the high-strength friction-grip bolt to provide the shear connection between the concrete slab and steel beam in composite construction. The first part deals with static push-out tests to determine the strength of such connectors. The second describes tests on beams, some with precast and others with cast in situ slabs using them. The results show that the high-strength friction-grip bolt can be used as an efficient connector in composite construction. W.T. Marshall, H.M. Nelson and H.K. Banerjee
