Behaviour of Headed Stud Connectors in Composite Beams with Very Deep Profiled Sheeting
Albarram, Ahmed 2018. Behaviour of Headed Stud Connectors in Composite Beams with Very Deep Profiled Sheeting. PhD Thesis University of East London School of Architecture, Computing and Engineering
Lack of design rules and no past research on the behaviour of composite beams with steel decks deeper than 80 mm is a major knowledge gap. Thus, this research provides fundamental information on the behaviour of headed stud connectors with narrow and very deep decks. After a series of extensive validation, a vast number of 3-D push-off tests are modelled using ABAQUS/Explicit package. Both secondary and primary composite beam systems are investigated. Critical examination is conducted on the existing design equations to assess their accuracy in predicting the shear stud capacity with the use of narrow and very deep decks.
