This is getting confusing :) Looks like Mr. Cochran responded with a
similar detail description to mine, it went through before mine, you
responded to it thinking it was mine....

For the 35C, 40C, 55C series joists, Truss Joist calc's a shear transfer
capacity of 1125#/' between the web and top flange. As Sasha Itsekson
points out you do have to watch where the web splice occurs.

I will let Mr. Cochran respond to your question about the tie rod detail
since he deserves the credit for coming up with it :)
