In the last 15 years timber-concrete composite (TCC) systems have gained market share around the world. To facilitate acceptance of this construction method and to set basis for building TCC bridges in the Province of Quebec, the authors conducted a test program on TCC beams with continuous shear connectors. It included push-out tests on the connection and static bending tests on single-T TCC beams with 4-m and 12-m span and on double-T beams with 4-m span. The goal was to study the elastic and post-elastic performance and failure induced by the connector, analyse the relationship between the interface slip and the flexural behav iour and compare the test results with the predictions using design and analysis methods. The tests on beams with the continuous shear connector showed that it is possible to achieve high degree of the composite action between the concrete slab and timber beam followed by plastic deformation and failure of the connector inducing a ductile performance of the beam required in bridge design. The use of linear and non-linear analysis methods allows predicting the observed structural response of the TCC beams.
