Study on the Response of Stud Shear Connectors Subjected to Different Loading Rate
Loading rate has an effect on the low-cycle fatigue of the stud shear connector. A reasonable test have been used for the study, the results show that, number of cycle and the maximum slip are obviously different at the rate of 1Hz, 3Hz, 5Hz, but the difference are not in linear with the rate. Moreover, the fitting parameters of the Load-Slip curves follow certain laws.
