This paper deals with flexural investigation of a type of steel-concrete composite beam structure able to provide an adequate bond between steel and concrete elements through the application of a simple steel reinforcement shear connector design, steel reinforcing bars bent into L-shapes. The cross sections involve inverted steel T-beam being embedded within reinforced concrete (RC) flange of the slab. The paper concentrates on elastic and elastic-plastic behaviour of steel inverted T-beam entrenched within a reinforced concrete flange at the top. In addition, shear connection was investigated in detail. Finally, some suggested designing equations and curves simulating the elastic, elastoplastic and full plastic experimental moments were developed. The plastic theoretical study results coincides with the experimental behaviour of the developed model.
