In this paper, finite element analysis of Steel-Concrete panel(SCP) was conducted considering the local buckling behavior and the optimized design of shear studs arrangement was studied by comparing with design guidelines. If the spacing of the studs of SCP is widened, it is easy to be manufactured and the weight fo members become lighter. On the other hand, the steel plate would be vulnerable to the local buckling behavior. Therefore, the guidance and design of SCP limit the maximum spacing of the studs to prevent the development of shear cracks and local buckling, however this is based on the design criteria of the other composite structures. Parameter studies with changes in stud spacing on steel plate and SCP are conducted and the obtained result was compared with values given in design guidelines.
