Kim Olson, PE, Structural Engineer with FORSE Consulting, Technical Consultants to the Steel Tube Institute will present a webinar titled “Steel Joists, Joist Girders and Hollow Structural Sections (HSS).” Due to their economies, steel joists and Joist Girders are often framed to HSS columns and sometimes HSS beams. This webinar will explore how economical member and connection design will help you reap the benefits of this perfect pairing.
- What are the different HSS material specifications available today and what I should be specifying?
- Review the limit states unique to HSS members that come into play when designing joist / Joist Girder connections.
- Explore various connections between joists / Joist Girders and HSS members and how they can be achieved economically.
- Discuss the resources available from SJI and STI to aid engineers in specifying these members and connections.
