To accomplish rapid installation and replaceability, a new type of connector for new fully assembled steel-concrete composite beams was studied. The connectors are fixed on the C-shaped channels of the prefabricated floor slab. The load transfer along the interface of the precast floor slab and the steel beam is primarily achieved through the friction between the beam flange and the channels. Push-out tests were conducted to study the mechanical properties of new composite beam. The effects of different C-shaped channel types, repeated loading and number of connectors were investigated. Test results showed that all the connectors exhibited satisfactory performance. When the section height of C-shaped channel is small, the restraining effect on the connector is more remarkable. The shear strength and shear stiffness of the connectors can be improved by reloading. The formulas for calculating the shear strength derived agree well with the experimental results.
