Load Zone Joist Design

Load Zone Joist Design

An alternative to specifying KCS series joists is to specify joists designated as KZ to support the concentrated loads residing in specific areas defined as “load zones”. With the boundaries of the zones defined and the corresponding concentrated loads specified, New Millennium engineers can substantially reduce steel material costs for your project.

 

The designer may specify as many loads and corresponding “load zones” as needed. The fewer zones specified, the more efficient the joist will be.

  • Reduces costs through more efficient steel joist design
  • Designed as either K or LH series
  • Shear and moment envelopes are developed for all load cases within the zones and the joists are designed accordingly, including any stress reversal which may occur
