GARCIA ZAMORA, Alejandro  e  MOLINA HERRERA, Maritzabel. Laminated steel and concrete slab composite beam behavior using grade two shear connector screws. Ing. Investig. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.3, pp.11-21. ISSN 0120-5609.

This paper reports using theoretical-experimental analysis for obtaining and characterising the design parameters governing steel and concrete slab composite beams’ behaviour using shear connector screws. Currently no research has been found about such behaviour and Colombian seismic-resistant regulations (NSR-98) have not yet defined such design; these types of connectors are most used in constructing composite sections in Colombia . The results of 36 experimental scale tests for 21MPa and 28MPa concrete strengths were taken for the analysis; each concrete strength had three screw diameters (Ø1/2 ", Ø5/8 " and Ø3/4 ") with 0.10m and 0.30m separations. This research also studied other effects such as slip caused by steel and connector profile deformation or deformation due to concrete degradation. Formulations were thus used which included connector slip and separation. The article sets out a methodology for designing composite beams using shear connector screws. It also proposes a formulation for calculating connector shear strength, thereby obtaining almost 62% stud connector resistance when separation was 0.10m and an extra 13% for 0.30m separations in elastic parameters where 62% of theoretical effective inertia was obtained and 23% more composite beam average bending strength was found than that required by current regulations.

Palavras-chave : composite beams; slip; deformation; shear connectors; partial interaction.
