A design shear resistance formula for Y-type perfobond rib shear connectors is proposed with the various reduction factors, which can be selected depending on the target safety level. The nominal shear resistance formula is improved based on the systematic sensitivity analysis as well as the regression fit test based on 84 push-out test results, including 15 additional push-out tests to extend the application ranges and reduce the estimation errors, compared to the formula proposed in previous studies. Some design variables are additionally included in the proposed design for-mula: the yield strengths of rebar and rib plate. The basic design variables in the proposed design formula are (1) number of ribs and transverse rebars, (2) concrete compressive strength, (3) rebar diameter and yield strength, and (4) rib thickness, width, height, and yield strength. The application ranges of the basic design variables are recommended for the proposed design formula. The various shear resistance reduction factors are proposed based on the probabilistic ultimate shear resistance model of Y-type perfobond rib shear connectors. The proposed procedure may be recommended to develop the design formula for shear connectors with various shapes.
