April 19 – Wind Design Considerations for Joists and Joist Girders


SKU: WebinarApril2017. Category: .

Product Description

The Steel Joist Institute presents the webinar “Wind Design Considerations for Joists and Joist Girders.” This webinar will provide a comprehensive review of wind forces on steel joist and Joist Girder roof systems, including wind load determination, wind load combinations, and wind load application. Specification, analysis, and design to resist uplift loads will be a primary focus, but also load paths and connections for wind moment frames, collectors, and braces.

This in-depth webinar is sponsored by the Steel Joist Institute (SJI) and participation will earn you 0.15 CEUs or 1.5 PDHs.

Learning Objectives

  • Attendees will review the appropriate load combinations involving wind.
  • The appropriate load paths for wind forces will be discussed.
  • Tips will be provided for connection details for the transfer of wind forces.
  • Attendees will be advised of two new developments affecting wind design.

Who Should Attend This Webinar?

Structural engineers, fabricators, detailers and connection design firms who are responsible for steel joist and Joist Girder building designs and their connections. Individuals who are responsible for the design of Joist Girder moment frames that are subjected to gravity and lateral loading as well as those responsible for auditing, reviewing or approving such designs will benefit from this course. Those with very little design experience as well as those with many years of experience will find the course beneficial.
