Would you get any benefit from either (A) creating a diaphragm on the bottom
of the joists by welding some steel deck or something to try to create a
"composite" joist with altered section properties, or from (B) using
extensive bridging or blocking to create some load sharing in the joists?  I
don't know if either answer would help, but they sound relatively
inexpensive.
