Abstract

It is common to use composite systems consisting of steel profiles and concrete slabs in modern steel framework structures. In this experimental study, the behavior and ultimate loads of composite beams with web concrete are investigated in the negative bending-moment zone. Test specimens with five various concrete qualities, four different steels as support reinforcements, two different but practically sized spans of 5 m and 3 m, and three different steel profiles with cross sections prepared with or without column elements have been tested. Serviceability limit states and ultimate limit states are both studied.
