Shear Connectors for Composite Beam

Shown here is an example of a type of shear connector that causes the steel beam and the concrete slab to act as an integral unit. These are headed studs and the beam and slab make what is called a composite beam. These studs are electrical resistance-welded to the beam with a special tool, either in the shop or in the field.
