Bar Joist

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Message
    When you distribute roof loads to your bar joists, do you consider the continuity of the metal decking, or do you figure the decking is pinned between joists? Continuity makes a big difference particularly for the second joist from an edge where there is snow drift. In addition, what about floor loads when you have deck with concrete?
