Abstract:
shear connection between steel beams and composite slabs. The advantages to be gained using these components include: suppression of unsatisfactory failure modes which are typically brittle in nature and result in premature failure of the shear connection; a significant reduction in the amount of reinforcement needed for longitudinal shear resistance compared to conventional detailing; simplified design procedures; and easy and rapid installation on site. Rules developed for design engineers to detail beams incorporating some of the new products are described.
