RE: Beams, joists, girders and "joist girders"

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Joist girders are not necessarily deeper than the joists they support, but joist girders do in fact support joists.

In office building design, it is often economical to make the joist girders at about the same elevation as the bottom of the joists. Thus since the joists bear on the joist girders, the joists will be deeper than the joist girders.

Harold Sprague

Ref: John Rileys definitions for beams, joists and
girders.

I have also encountered the term "Joist Girders"
I presume these are deeper and longer span joists that
support other joists.
