The use of precast decks in steel-concrete composite construction offers variety of advantages. Research to date has mostly focused on the use of headed stud anchors with hollow core precast decks for building structures. A large number of connectors has to be used when headed studs are employed, which increases the labor required to fill the spaces with grout or mortar. In this thesis a new system is proposed where the headed stud anchors are replaced with channel connectors. The use of channel connectors enables the reduction of the number of connectors. The proposed system has been studied through a two-phase experimental program. In the first phase, 20 push-out tests were conducted on channel connectors embedded in grout or mortar with different strengths. The size of the channel section and its width were considered as the prime variables. The test results showed that the channel connectors embedded in grout or mortar behave similar to conventional systems where the channel connectors interact with in-situ concrete. In the second phase, 4 full scale composite beam tests were conducted for proof-of-concept where the degree of composite action was the prime variable. The test results showed that the proposed system offers strengths similar to conventional fully or partially composite beams and can be an alternative to the existing composite systems.

Behavior of steel-concrete partially composite beams with channel type shear connectors
Baran, Eray; Topkaya, Cem (2014-06-01)
This paper summarizes the findings of an experimental study investigating the flexural behavior of partially composite beams incorporating channel type shear connectors. Results from monotonic load testing of four full-scale steel-concrete composite beams and a steel beam are presented. The main effort focused on identifying the variation of strength and stiffness properties of beams with various degrees of partial composite action. Behavior of channel shear connectors in the composite beam specimens is rel...

Design of isolated bridges for adaptive seismic performance using gapped hysteretic damper connections
Dicleli, Murat (null; 2018-08-03)
Hysteretic dampers in bridges with seismically isolated decks are usually coupled with shock transmitters in order to prevent their engagement during thermal displacements of the deck. An alternative design approach is presented in this paper where the dampers are attached to the deck using elongated holes (gaps) which are sized to accommodate the thermal displacements and hence to keep the dampers from being activated during thermal displacements. The gaps are sized based on the expected maximum thermal di...
EFFECTS of ROTATION of MATERIAL AXES ON FREE FLEXURAL VIBRATIONS of CENTRALLY BONDED SYMMETRIC DOUBLE DOUBLER JOINT in COMPOSITE MINDLIN PLATES or PANELS
Yuceoglu, U.; Guvendik, O. (2011-11-17)
The present study investigates the serious effects of rotation of material axes on the free dynamic response of composite plates or panels with "Bonded Double Doubler Mint Systems". The "Plate Adherends" and the "Upper and Lower Doubler Plates" are connected through the relatively very thin adhesive layers. The "Bonded Double Doubler Joint System" is considered in taans of the "System. 1" and the "System.2". In the "System. 1", the material directions of "Plate Adherends" are rotated 90(0) (about z-axis) wh...
