A NEW APPROACH TO THE DESIGN OF STUD SHEAR CONNECTORS IN COMPOSITE BRIDGE BEAMS
New experimental tests now show that the monotonic strength of stud shear connectors reduces under fatigue loads and hence present design techniques do not simulate the actual behaviour of the shear connection. A method is given of designing the shear connection to allow for the reduction in the monotonic strength due to fatigue loads, which can also be used to estimate the residual strength of the shear connection in existing bridge beams (A).
