The Steel Construction Institute (SCI)
Shear connection in steel-concrete composite beams has been the subject of some interest over recent years, with several international research groups reconsidering both the resistance and ductility of shear studs.
Portal frame buildings despite being very common, are a structural form with features that present particular challenges; this has led to specialisation by some designers and manufacturers. The purpose of this final article in the series is to identify and discuss these features, which are not usually found in buildings of more than one storey.
This final article in the composite part of this construction compendium looks at three aspects of construction; the provision of lateral restraint to the beams, whether the steelwork is propped and how the concrete is levelled.
