SJI Presents Part Two of Joist and Girder Webinar

The Steel Joist Institute (SJI) is presenting part two of its two-part webinar, "Evaluation and Modification of Open Web Steel Joists and Joist Girders," on Wednesday, November 21, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET. Attendees are not required to have watched part one to participate.

The webinar will discuss and demonstrate the methods to modify existing open web steel joists and joist girders for revised loading conditions. This webinar parallels the SJI publication, Technical Digest No. 12: Evaluation and Modification of Open Web Steel Joists and Joist Girders.

Learning objectives include:

  • Methods and practices to modify existing joists to increase the load-carrying capacity
  • Details that are commonly used to increase the load-carrying capacity of a joist component
  • The realistic limits of modifications, with alternatives when modifications are not possible
  • Examples where the joist lengths are altered

Attendees can earn 1.5 PDHs. Individual and site registration is available here.
