Abstract: The paper presents the results of an investigation on steel-concrete composite beam subjected to static loading. An experimental investigation and analytical study using finite element analysis (FEA). The load carrying capacity of the steel-concrete composite beam is presented. The steel-concrete composite beam is embedded with 19 mm stud shear connector. The interaction of steel-concrete layers of composite beam with headed stud shear connector due to the application of flexural load is analysed. The experimental results are compared with those of analytical modelling using ANSYS 10.

Keywords: headed stud shear connector; steel-concrete composite beam; flexural loading; FEA; finite element analysis; ANSYS.
