Open Web Steel Joist Composite Floor System [N25]

This presentation will outline potential advantages associated with SJI's CJ-Series composite joists. Computational aspects of composite steel joist behavior per SJI's new 2nd Edition Specifications will be shown. Guidelines for installing welded shear studs onto the chords of CJ-Series joists and serviceability considerations will be discussed along with optimal CJ-Series joist spacing and available UL fire ratings. The presentation will demonstrate how one can readily estimate the vibrational characteristics of CJ-Series joist floor systems utilizing SJI's TD5, AISC's DG 11, and FloorVibe. Preliminary estimating of CJ-Series costs can readily be completed utilizing SJI's new Floor Bay Analysis Tool. Technical details surrounding SJI's CJ-Series joists are described in greater detail within SJI's new TD13 on Composite Steel Joists. The session will conclude with a review of typical projects utilizing SJI's CJ-Series Joists.
