A Shear connector, also know as the Weld Stud is a steel projection provided on the top flange of steel composite bridge girders to provide necessary shear transfer between the steel girder and composite/concrete slab to enable composite action. Shear studs are generally attached to the top flanges of girders using a welding gun. The stud is held in the welding gun and an arc is struck between stud and the flange plate. Arc melts a portion of both the stud and the plate in a set time.
The most widely used form of shear connector is the headed stud, or shear stud.
Standard sizes for shear studs, which are readily available from Shabbari Trading LLC and typically used in steel composite bridge decks, are of length (in mm) 125, 150, 175, 200, 250 and diameters M16, M19, M22, M25.
Advantages of Shear Studs
The advantages of shear studs over other forms of connectors are that the
