Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Diaphragms in Partnership with SDI




The Steel Joist Institute presents the webinar “Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Diaphragms by Representatives of the SDI.” Recent changes in design codes and construction practices have made diaphragm connection design more complicated and time-consuming. This webinar identifies those changes, provides design guidance, review upcoming publications, and introduces new SDI design tools

The learning objectives include:

  • Recognizing appropriate AISI and SDI Standards and literature
  • Understanding the limits of existing shear tables and evaluation reports
  • Design procedures for uniquely shaped and sloped structures
  • Design procedures and shear capacities over CF framing
