This study investigates the flexural strength of simply-supported steel–concrete composite beams under two-point loading. A total of four specimens were tested to failure for varying parameters including type of connectors (stud and channel) and number of connectors (two and four). ANSYS software was used to establish the finite element models that can simulate the flexural behaviour of the composite beam. The test results show that a beam with channel connectors performs better than a beam with stud connectors. The composite beam with two connectors between the beam and slab causes additional deflection due to slippage in the connectors, when compared to the beam with four connectors. The results from the analytical model are in good agreement with the experimental results.
