Design of Steel Joist Roofs to Resist Uplift
The Steel Joist Institute discusses the key points of Technical Digest No. 6, “Design of Steel Joist Roofs to Resist Uplift Loads. “Topics include the design requirements of the ASCE/SEI 7-10 wind provisions for open web steel joists and Joist Girders and the end anchorage and bridging considerations for uplift loads on steel joists.
- Explains the design approach for the provisions regarding uplift loads in the ASCE 7-10.
- Relates the provision to ways to specify uplift loads to open web steel joists and Joist Girders in roof systems.
- Provides design examples of how to specify the loads determined in the building codes to open web steel joists and Joist Girders.
- Gives the anchorage requirements that are needed to properly design a roof system for uplift.
