Several different models are in use for the fatigue resistance of welded stud shear connectors for composite beams, and there is much inconsistency in reported test data. Extensive statistical analyses of these data have identzped the best of the models and

Professor Bill Harvey writes from the University of Exeter:
I read the letter from Melvin Hurst in the 16 April issue of The Structural Engineer with mild amusement. The background he describes is part of a different world, so it’s
possible to laugh off being condemned by the industry I labour to support. What is harder to take is the enthusiastic embracing of the tone by the sage himself.
It was not stars that shone in the sky over Birmingham last Christmas but the lights of
Christmas trees fixed to tower cranes which swung over the building developments gradually springing up in the city. Few passersby walking underneath these enormous cranes appreciate the legal difficulties which tower cranes can pose for the owners of the sites being developed and for the builders using the cranes.
