This database contains the results of 242 push tests on headed stud shear connectors embedded in solid concrete slabs. The database can be used as a basis for structural reliability analyses, or the development of machine learning models for predicting the resistance of headed stud connectors used in composite steel and concrete construction. For details of the changes made between the different versions of the database, please refer to the quality record sheet within the file. [The database was used in the reliability analyses presented in the following paper that was published within the Journal of Constructional Steel Research https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jcsr.2017.09.018]
