SJI Presents Wind Design Webinar

The Steel Joist Institute (SJI) is presenting a webinar, “Wind Design Considerations for Joists and Joist Girders,” on Wednesday, March 15 from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. (ET).

This webinar will provide a comprehensive review of wind forces on steel joist and joist girder roof systems, including wind load determination, wind load combinations and wind load application. Specification, analysis and design to resist uplift loads will be a primary focus. The webinar will also look at load paths and connections for wind moment frames, collectors and braces.

Attendees will review the appropriate load combinations involving wind, and will be advised of two new developments affecting wind design. The webinar will discuss the appropriate load paths for wind forces, and presenters will provide tips for connection details for the transfer of wind forces.

Individual and group registration is available at
