Welded headed Shear Studs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If a contractor decides to fillet weld headed studs to a beam instead of creating a full pen weld using a stud gun, is that equivalent in strength? I know this depends upon the fillet weld size but I thought I remember hearing something in the past that told me they are not equivalent. I cannot seem to find my reference right now. 
Can someone help me out?
