Design of Steel Joist Roofs to Resist Uplift
$0.00 – $25.00
The Steel Joist Institute discusses the key points of Technical Digest No. 6, “Design of Steel Joist Roofs to Resist Uplift Loads. “Topics include the design requirements of the ASCE/SEI 7-10 wind provisions for open web steel joists and Joist Girders and the end anchorage and bridging considerations for uplift loads on steel joists.
- Explains the design approach for the provisions regarding uplift loads in the ASCE 7-10.
- Relates the provision to ways to specify uplift loads to open web steel joists and Joist Girders in roof systems.
- Provides design examples of how to specify the loads determined in the building codes to open web steel joists and Joist Girders.
- Gives the anchorage requirements that are needed to properly design a roof system for uplift.
