An experimental campaign of three-point bending tests on specimens of Hybrid Steel Trussed Concrete Beams (HSTCBs) is presented. The scope of the experiments is the evaluation of the shear strength in the structural typology object of study. Two series of specimens are tested, subjected to positive and negative bending moment, respectively, with the aim to reproduce, in the first case, the condition in the midspan of a beam belonging to a framed structure and, in the second case, the behavior of the beam next to the column where the sign of the bending moment is reversed. The obtained experimental results are interpreted by means of an analytical model for the prediction of the shear resistance, taking into account the peculiarities of the tested beams typology.
