Paper Title:
Behavior of Channel Shear Connectors in Normal and Light Weight Aggregate Concrete (Experimental and Analytical Study)
  Abstract

This paper describes five push-out tests carried out at the University of Malaya using channel shear connector. The tests study experimentally and analytically, the behavior of channel shear connectors embedded in normal and light weight aggregate concrete (LWAC). Limited push-out tests are used to measure the accuracy of a proposed nonlinear finite element model for typical push-out test specimens. Using this model, an extensive parametric study performed to arrive at prediction for shear capacity of channel connectors in LWAC. An equation is suggested for the shear capacity of these connectors in LWAC.
