SJI Presents Joist and Girder Webinar November 15

The Steel Joist Institute is presenting the second part of its two-part webinar series “Evaluation and Modification of Open Web Steel Joists and Joist Girders” on Wednesday, November 15, from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. (ET), followed by a 15-minute Q&A session.

This webinar will discuss and demonstrate the methods to modify existing open web steel joists and joist girders for revised loading conditions. The webinar parallels the SJI publication Technical Digest No. 12. Presenters will discuss methods and practices to modify existing joists to increase load carrying capacity; provide details that are commonly used to increase the load carrying capacity of a joist component; address the realistic limits of modifications, with alternatives when modifications are not possible; and show examples of where joist lengths are altered.

Individual and site registration is available at
