April 19 – Design of Steel Deck for Concentrated and Nonuniform Loading


SKU: WebinarApril2023_indiv Categories: ,


Steel floor and roof deck manufacturers publish load tables for uniform loads, but what if the loads on your project are not uniform? Designers frequently face concentrated loads caused by rack systems, forklifts, scissor lifts, mechanical equipment, RTUs and other dead, live or construction loads. This webinar will provide designers with the rationale needed to better analyze these loading conditions to ensure a proper design.

This webinar is provided by the Steel Joist Institute in partnership with the Steel Deck Institute. Participants can earn 1.5 PDHs.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize load cases that require additional analyses beyond distribution as a uniform load
  • Understand the limit states for slab design under concentrated loads
  • Examine different load paths for varying concentrated load conditions
  • Review current and new SDI design approaches for concentrated loads
  • Demonstrate potential shortcuts to concentrated load design
  • Present example problems for design with concentrated loads


Date: April 19, 2023
Time: 1:00-2:30 p.m. ET

Who Should Attend This Webinar?

Structural engineers, fabricators, detailers and connection design firms that are responsible for steel joist and Joist Girder building designs and their connections. Those with very little design experience as well as those with many years of experience will find the course beneficial.
