Riveted Flat Bar Open Web Steel Joists

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I’ve run across what appears to be an open web steel joist with flat bar webs riveted to double angle chords.


My contact at SJI does not have any information on this type of joist.


I can analyze the members using the field measured cross sections using assumed material strengths based on the age of the structure, but I was wondering if anyone has run across this type of joist before. I have a couple of pictures I can send you if you are interested in seeing what I’m talking about.
