Abstract

One of the increasingly important parameters in the construction sector is the time required for the execution and easy demounting of a structure. The goal of this paper is to provide insight into an on-going research focusing on structural performance of large prefabricated concrete decks connected by a demountable shear connectors. A large bolt-to-hole clearance is used to accomplish both requirements. The holes are injected by an epoxy resin to ensure composite action. The demountability and reusability of the composite beam system was successfully tested.
