Abstract:In the vicinity of the shear connectors, the slab of a composite steel-concrete beam is subjected to a severe combination of longitudinal shear and transverse bending moment. Existing methods for the design of the transverse reinforcement for this region are compared with the results of tests, and a new ultimate strength design method is proposed.
