The Steel Joist Institute presents the webinar “Wind Design Considerations for Joists and Joist Girders.” This webinar will provide a comprehensive review of wind forces on steel joist and Joist Girder roof systems, including wind load determination, wind load combinations, and wind load application. Specification, analysis, and design to resist uplift loads will be a primary focus, but also load paths and connections for wind moment frames, collectors, and braces.
- Attendees will review the appropriate load combinations involving wind.
- The appropriate load paths for wind forces will be discussed.
- Tips will be provided for connection details for the transfer of wind forces.
- Attendees will be advised of two new developments affecting wind design.
