Design of Steel Deck for Concentrated and Non-Uniform Loading



Product Description

The Steel Joist Institute presents the webinar “Design of Steel Deck for Concentrated and Non-Uniform Loading.” Steel floor and roof deck manufacturers publish load tables for uniform loads, but what if the loads that are 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.

The learning objectives include:

  • Recognize load cases that require additional analysis 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 SDI design approach for concentrated loads
  • Demonstrate potential shortcuts to concentrated load design
  • Present example problems for design with concentrated loads
