Abstract

Local effects on the shear connection of composite girders induced by longitudinal actions such as the anchorages of prestressing cables, concrete shrinkage, or a uniform thermal action on the slab are analyzed. Closed-form solutions are obtained by using the simple model of a composite beam with a linearly elastic shear connection. Successively, by considering the limit scheme of an infinitely long beam, very simple formulas are derived permitting evaluation of the peak value and extension of the interface shear force distribution induced by the longitudinal actions. Numerical applications are carried out to show the effectiveness of the proposed formulas for a wide range of the shear connection stiffness and for longitudinal forces applied both along the beam axis and at the beam end.
