The TCB Shear Stud is used in composite structures and uniquely conforms to the standards for preloaded bolts as well as shear studs:

  • Property class 10.9/10
  • TCB Shear Stud assembly comprises 1x bolt, 2x right-hand threaded nuts and 1x washer
  • Supplied with superior corrosion protection Greenkote®.

TCB Shear Studs are typically used on composite bridges where the steel is being strengthened with concrete being poured from above.

shear stud tcb in useThe shank of the bolt protrudes above the steel to become a Shear Stud, and the dome head of the TCB more readily accepts the concrete when compared to a hex headed stud.

Bridge engineers can also factor in their designs the greater bearing surface of the TCB dome head to mitigate against uplift.
