Wind Design Considerations for Joist and Joist Girders [E30a]

Attendees will learn the proper design of steel joist and joist girder roof systems for resisting uplift loads, as well as requirements for bearing seat design and bearing design. The session will include practical advice on the proper analysis, design, and specification of steel joists and joist girders as part of a moment frame as well as the use of joists or joist girders as drag struts or collector elements in the lateral load distribution system when shear walls or braced frames are employed. Finally, the session will discuss the interaction and design of kickers or braces between walls subjected to wind loads.
