The Steel Joist Institute presents “Economical Selection of Open Web Steel Joists”. This webinar discusses the economies of the various combinations of joists, Joist Girders, bridging, and deck that create bay framing. It will also cover the relative cost impacts of joist special loads and conditions, such as concentrated loads at undefined locations.

The webinar discusses:

  • The factors that influence the joist framing system economy, including joist spacing, member depths, bay dimensions, and framing orientation for standard roofs.
  • Span-to-depth ratios which are most likely to create the most value.
  • Relative cost comparisons for floor framing, special shapes and freight.
  • Various options for handling point loads as well as the latest rules and terminology for point loads that are located off of panel points.
