Steel-concrete composite construction is structurally efficient but is impossible to dismount where the floor slab is permanently connected to the steel beams through traditional welded studs. This contradicts the reuse and reduce aspects of the circular economy concept which has recently been introduced to the construction industry. Within the RFCS REDUCE project, several solutions have been proposed. Demountability of the composite beams using the proposed new shear connectors has been successfully demonstrated by push-out tests and full-scale beam tests. Both experiments and numerical simulations showed that the composite beams can develop plasticity even the demountable shear connectors in solid concrete slabs failed in a brittle way. To extend the scope of Eurocode 4 and avoid uneconomic elastic design, effective shear resistance of the demountable shear connectors was defined by using a newly developed algorithm, for the calculation of the plastic moment capacity of composite sections with partial shear connection.

The work presents a numerical study that focuses on steel-concrete composite beams using ductile headed stud shear connectors. The objective is to check the suitability of the proposed revised EN 1994-1-1 rules for the minimum degree of shear connection. Therefore, a non-linear 3D finite element model of simply supported composite beams was developed and validated against the analytical values of the plastic bending design resistance. The parametric study consists of 10 configurations where the relative slip at slab-beam interface was carefully investigated at different degrees of shear connection and propping conditions. Specifically, the slip at the minimum degree of shear connection shall not exceed the limit of 6 mm defined as the characteristic slip of ductile connector according to EN 1994-1-1. The results showed that the revised rules for unpropped beams delivers conservative results whereas one case with propped conditions exhibit a maximum slip significantly higher than 6 mm. [less ▲]

The current practice to assure composite action foresees the usage of headed studs. This type of mechanical shear connectors was developed for composite beams and only adopted for the column’s usage. Application in composite columns could lead to a reduced economy, especially for heavy composite columns used in high-rise buildings. A new type of flat shear connectors was developed and characterized that allows for fully automatic application process. This secures an increased safety of the whole structure, improved performance, optimized cross-section, reduced manufacturing time and costs. The presented paper gives a short description about the development process and focuses on the proposed analytical model describing the resistance of flat shear connectors. The developed analytical model comprises the complex stress state, which is present in the highly confined concrete directly under the connectors. The assumptions and theoretical models were confirmed in complex non-linear FE simulations performed in the Abaqus software. [less ▲]
