Experimental analysis on steel and lightweight concrete composite beams
Isabel B. Valente and Paulo J.S. Cruz

 
Abstract     [Full Text]
    The present work describes the experimental tests on steel and lightweight concrete composite beams performed at University of Minho, Portugal. The study involves tests on simply supported composite beams of 4.5 m span, with the same geometrical disposition, supports and materials. The geometrical configuration for the cross section and supports is identical for every beam, varying the shear connectors
 
Key Words
    composite beams; lightweight concrete; shear connection; headed studs.
