oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Composite floor slabs using profiled steel decking with stud shear connectors as end anchorages

Volume 18, Issue 5
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



The results of a pilot study on the behaviour of composite floor slabs with profiled steel decking and stud shear connectors as end anchorages are presented. The behaviour of composite slabs with and without stud shear connectors is compared. A theoretical method is developed for predicting the maximum strength of composite slabs with stud shear connectors as end anchorages. This method gives better results than the method currently recommended in Europe for the range of geometrical parameters investigated.
