Abstract: A new fatigue test for stud connectors able to represent as confidently as possible the actual behavior of the stud in a composite beam is herein proposed. This test method avoid most of the shortcomings of the standard push-out test and allows to perform easily reverse cyclic loading with either load or displacement control procedure. The specimen is arranged with one single connector so to allow on the one hand to survey the local behavior of the stud during fatigue life and on the other hand to permit to draw analytical relationships under cyclic loading (cyclic load-slip relationship). Some monotonic and fatigue tests evidenced the reliability of the test method proposed.
