Joist and Girder Webinar Series

The Steel Joist Institute is hosting a two-part webinar series, titled “Evaluation and Modification of Open Web Steel Joists and Joist Girders,” which will parallel the SJI publication, Technical Digest No. 12 “Evaluation and Modification of Open Web Steel Joists and Joist Girders."

The webinar series will identify the key characteristics of in-place joists, discuss how to verify the original design loads and evaluate the joist for the new loads. And, as part of the evaluation, procedures will be discussed to identify the joist components and connections that are inadequate.

Part one of the webinar will be held next Wednesday, August 20, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (EDT) and will discuss the methods to first evaluate existing open web steel joists for revised loading conditions. Registration for this webinar is available at www.steeljoist.org/aug20webinar.

Part two will be held on Wednesday, September 17 from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (EDT) and will demonstrate the methods to modify existing open web steel joists for revised loading conditions. Registration for this webinar is available at www.steeljoist.org/sept17webinar.

Individual registration cost is $50.00 and each person who registers will receive their own link to the webinar and earn 0.15 CEUs/1.5 PDHs/1.5 LUs. Site registration also is available for $200.00, allowing multiple attendees from the same company to use one link to the webinar.
