    In steel structures, the connections will be designed whether simple, semi-continuous, or continuous construction, either using non-composite or composite connections. Many constructions are usually designed as simple which associated with simple construction or rigid which is associated with continuous construction. However, the actual behaviour between these two extreme cases is taken placed between simple and rigid, which is semi-rigid connection. The use of partial strength or semi-rigid connections for composite has been adviced by codes and studies doe to few researches doing on this field. The matter known as semi-continuous construction have proven that substantial savings in steel weight of the overall construction using non composite or composite connections. The objective of this paper is to present the behaviour of partial strength connections flush end plate full of composite steel beam with partial strength connections using Trapezoid Web Profiled (TWP) steel sections and Universal Beam (UB). The composite TWP steel section, built up section with the flange designed using S355 steel section and the web is designed using S275 steel section. Four full scale tests have been carried out for composite beams with flush and extended end-plate connections as partial strength composite connections. The use of partial strength composite connections will also reduce the deflection of the beam as suggested by the Steel Construction Institute (SCI). The moment resistances and the deflection of the composite beam presented in this paper, and the behavior of end-plate connections showed extremely good agreement between experimental values and the predicted values. The results have shown that the partial restrained of the composite connections has contributed to the reduction in the deflection, the increase in the moment resistance of the beam, and the the restrain of rotation on the composite connections of the design of TWP steel section as a beam.
