Joist and Joist Girder Reinforcement Tool
This design tool has been developed by the Steel Joist Institute to assist the SER and the steel fabricator with the complex task of reinforcing open web steel joists and Joist Girders in order to increase their strength to accommodate added loads for which they were not originally designed. Seventeen individual spreadsheets are available for reinforcing schemes.
Joist and Joist Girder Reinforcement Tool version 1.1 is available for free download. Complete the form or log in to your account to access this tool. SJI may notify you when updates are made to this design tool.
