Shear Stud Connectors UK

Shear Connector Studs are designed to tie the concrete slab to the steel beams and to resist shear loadings between the concrete slab and steel beam in composite construction.
Shear connectors are CE-conform. They fulfill all essential requirements of the Construction Products Regulation (Regulation (EC) No. 305/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2011).

Shear Connector Studs are designed to tie the concrete slab to the steel beams and to resist shear loadings between the concrete slab and steel beam in composite construction. This enables us to load up to 1000 kg/m2 instead of the usual load which is much less. The procedure saves time and therefore money as well due to its simplicity.
Each weld cycle depends on the diameter of the fastener and the material being joined and takes up to only 1 second. Welding currents range from 240 to 3000 amps

Shear Stud Connection in Composite beams

The Shear Stud is made of steel and it is delivered with a ceramic ferrule to ensure a good connection of the Stud with the beam.The shear Studs are available in different lengths and diameters . The length of the Stud will be reduced by approximately 5mm during the welding process. All Shear Studs are supplied with ferrules. The ferrules are made of clay and able to withstand heat shock as well as high temperatures without melting or breaking.

The shear connection of a composite beam comprises five elements that can all influence behaviour. They include the shear stud connectors, profiled steel sheeting(steel deck) ,

slab reinforcement (rebar or steel mesh) , concrete slab and steel beam top flange.

In such design the shear Stud connects the steel deck to the concrete slab.

Shear Stud Connectors are the most important element in Composite Beam design securing the concrete to steel structural components. Shear Stus Connectors resist shear forces and increase shear loading capacity in steel buildings,bridges,

Design of the shear stud connector is very important because

1- it affects the choice of a suitable ultimate strength design method for the composite beam

2-The economics and speed of construction

3-The stability of the steel beam

4-The safety of steel beam against collapsing

The ultimate strength of most composite beams is governed by shear stud connector shear capacity

Shear stud packaging

Packaging of shear studs can be in carton boxes which are easy to carry or in metal drums .Choice of packaging is upto to the customers' preference.

Welding Studs and ceramic ferrules for arc stud welding International Standard ISO 13918

Studs and Ceramic Ferrules for Arc Stud Weldingis the technical standard for shear studs which specifies:
1-the requirements for studs and ceramic ferrules for arc stud welding; 2-dimensions, materials, mechanical properties and, when required, conditions of evaluation of conformity

Inspection certificate : Top quality properties can be documented by test report 2.2 or inspection certificate 3.1 or 3.2 (EN 10204)
