Re: Joists welded to supports

Yes, why not?  'Never seen that before', I think for economical reasons.  Think of drilling top beam flange, think of beam design etc.  But maybe there are other ways to connect the joists (with kind of clamps for instance ?!)
But what about the deck?

Subject: Joists welded to supports

I'm currently working in a building expansion in an industrial plant. Due to safety reasons, field welds must be avoided as possible. The design includes roof joists and metal deck. Does anybody know if the joists can be attached to the supporting beams with bolts instead of field welds? I have never seen that before. Regards,
