Experimental Tests on Composite Beam with Various Slab Systems
This paper presents the structural behaviour of composite beams with various floor systems tested in full-scale arrangement. Six full-scale specimens with staggered and non-staggered arrangement of studs on the composite beams were tested until failure. The moment capacities obtained from the experiment are compared with the theoretical values established from BS 5950 and Eurocode 4. The experimental results showed good agreement with theoretical predictions while no significant influences were found between staggered and non-staggered arrangement of studs.
