Ductility of shear stud Recently one of our Indian clients asked the question about the reduction of area of shear stud, and he only knows the elongation of shear stud, the two parameters belong to the ductility of shear stud. This post will talk this topic. The shear studs(also called shear connectors) are

How to test mechanical properties of shear stud? Metals used in fastener(shear stud, bolt, etc) manufacture are elastic materials which will stretch (elongate) under applied loads and return to their original shape when the load is removed. However, if sufficient load is applied, the material will stretch beyond its yield point and enter a
