Joist Standard Specification Section 5.2 says the span of a joist shall not exceed 24 times its depth.

 << File: ATT00000.htm >> Does anybody know why the cutoff for the steel joist tables in the SJI
manual is where it is?
I am looking at a 41' span that I want to use a 20K series joist, but the
table stops at 40'.
Is there some kind of limit they use to stop the load values?  Has anybody
encountered this before?
