September 20 – Bridging – How it Works and What to Work Around


SKU: WebinarSeptember2017. Category: .

Product Description

The Steel Joist Institute presents the webinar “Bridging – How it Works and What to Work Around.” Steel joists provide excellent economy for vertical, in-plane loads. The lateral support bracing system – bridging – is a key to the performance of a steel joist. This webinar will explore steel joist bridging from two perspectives. First, the types, roles, forces, and specification criteria – “how it works.” And second, the challenges, potential conflicts, and solutions for the bridging layout and installation – “what to work around.”

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

  • The types and roles of bridging will be covered.
  • The governing criteria for the bridging spacing and sizing will be reviewed.
  • The connection details and options will be explored, both the drawing details and the realities of field installation.
  • A number of potential conflicts and resolutions for bridging locations will be discussed, such as working around sprinkler systems.

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.
