The paper reviews the most important analytic expressions, on the basis of the developed industrial countries' contemporary literature, for determination of strength of shear connectors in steel-concrete composite beams. The mechanism of possible failure and basic criteria used for defining of the shear connecter strength at composite slabs and composite slabs with profiled sheet. Special analysis has been done in the expressions and recommendations given by Eurocode 4 in the area of shear connecter strength, both elastic and rigid. For ail the presented regulations, a comparative analysis with our standing standard (JUS) addressing this area is given. Along with the comparative review of the regulations, a commentary on the strength of the shear connectors in composite beams is given.
