COMPOSITE BRIDGE STRINGERS-FINAL REPORT

A SUMMARY IS GIVEN OF THE RESULTS OF AN EXTENSIVE RESEARCH PROGRAM ESTABLISHED TO DETERMINE THE BEHAVIOR AND EFFICIENCY OF SHEAR CONNECTORS IN THE DESIGN OF COMPOSITE BRIDGE MEMBERS. FIVE PREVIOUS DETAILED REPORTS PLUS A BIBLIOGRAPHY HAVE BEEN ISSUED AND ARE LISTED. ITEMS OF PARTICULAR INTEREST TO DESIGNERS ARE THE RESULTS OF STUDIES OF STUD SHEAR CONNECTORS IN LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE AND THE EFFECT OF HAUNCHES ON COMPOSITE DESIGN. DESCRIPTIONS OF THE PUSHOUT TESTS, LOAD SLIP CURVES AND STUD SHEAR CONNECTOR CAPACITY CURVES ARE INCLUDED. COMPARISON OF TEST RESULTS WITH 1967 DESIGN PRACTICE INDICATES THAT DESIGN IS MORE CONSERVATIVE THAN NECESSARY. /BPR/
