Title: Re: 26H8 joists

From the 7th Edition Steel Manual, the 26H8 at 34' length has a total uniformly distributed allowable load of 394 plf. A live load of 370 plf will yield a deflection of L/360. The joist weighs 13 plf.

Subject: 26H8 joists

We have a job on an existing building.  The roof framing plan shows a
series of 26H8 joists (L=33'-4"). This joist does not appear in the SJI
historical joist catalog.  Does anyone have any idea what the TL/LL
allowable loads are?
