Stud shear connectors are usually used for composite girdiers in order to combine RC slabs and steel girders. Their mechanical properties, such as shear force-slip relation, are often evaluated through so-called pushout test. However, it has not been validated that the pushout test reproduces the deformation of stud shear connectors in actual structures. Therefore, we develop a numerical model and a method to correctly reproduce the deformation of stud shear connectors and evaluate their nonlinear shear properties.
Key Words : stud shear connector, periodic boundary condition, finite element analysis
