Re: Old Joist Type

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Actually, I usually get the thicknesses by hiring an ultra-sound inspector. However you still don't know the grade of the material and reinforcing is almost impossible so I just added some channels between the joists, cut the bridging and then re-install it.

I have used digital calipers before to rebuild old cold-formed properties and used AISI for the limit state checks. The pipes may be a problem since they could change thickness along the joists and unless you cut each diagonal and measure the thickness, you won't know.
