ANALYSIS OF COMPOSITE BEAMS

An analysis is presented for predicting the behaviour of composite beams consisting of a concrete slab attached to a steel beam by a shear connection. The effects of interface slip due to the flexibility of the connectors are included, as are the effects of residual stresses and non-linearity in the steel and concrete. Elastic methods of analysis are reviewed with the aim of assessing the errors introduced by the conventional T-Beam assumption. Comparisons are made with test results on beams having adequate or inadequate shear connections, and having the relatively high width to span ratio of 0.35.
