INTEGRATED STATIC AND FATIGUE DESIGN OR ASSESSMENT OF STUD SHEAR CONNECTIONS IN COMPOSITE BRIDGES

Several different models are in use for the fatigue resistance of welded stud shear connectors for composite beams, and there is much inconsistency in reported test data. Extensive statistical analyses of these data have identified the best of the models and values for its parameters; and many of the anomalies are explained. Static shear resistance diminishes almost linearly with cumulative damage from repeated loading, so that design checks for static and repeated loading should be integrated. An integrated method is explained and illustrated in a design context. It is particularly suitable for the assessment of existing structures.
