Composite Joists: New 2nd Edition Specifications and New Technical Digest No. 13




The Steel Joist Institute presents the webinar “Composite Joists – New 2nd Edition Specifications, New Technical Digest No. 13.” Composite steel construction has been recognized for a number of years as one of the most economical systems for building floors. It has been shown that composite steel joists deliver an economical shallow floor system with reduced floor-to-floor heights by providing easy routing of HVAC ducts, plumbing, and electrical conduits through the steel joist open web system. This webinar will focus on information contained within SJI’s soon to be published  Technical Digest 13, “Composite Steel Joists.”

The learning objectives include:

  • Potential benefits of using SJI’s CJ-Series composite joists in floor construction
  • Computational aspects of  composite steel joist behavior
  • How to efficiently utilize SJI’s Composite Steel Joist Catalog
  • Guidelines for installing welded shear studs onto the chords of CJ-Series joists and serviceability aspects of composite steel joists
