Steel Joist Institute Announces November Webinar
The Steel Joist Institute is hosting the second part of the “Evaluation and Modification of Open Web Steel Joists and Joist Girders” webinar on Wednesday, November 15 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. (EDT), followed by a 15-minute Q&A session.
Part two of the two-part webinar series discusses and demonstrates the methods to modify existing open web steel joists and Joist Girders for revised loading conditions. This webinar parallels the Steel Joist Institute publication, Technical Digest No. 12.
Presenters will discuss methods and practices to modify existing joists to increase the load carrying capacity; provide details which 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 where the joist lengths are altered.
Individual and site registration is now available online at steeljoist.org/novwebinar. Individual registration cost is $75. Each person who registers will receive his or her own link to the webinar, earn 0.15 CEUs or 1.5 PDHs, and receive a certificate of completion from SJI. Site registration is also available for $300, allowing multiple attendees from the same company to utilize one link to the webinar.
