    Three Benefits of the Composite Steel Joist
    Article reprinted from Structure magazine on composite steel joists

    Lighter, shallower, and cheaper: composite steel joist floor systems can save costs, save materials, and optimize space. These cost-saving reasons for designing a composite steel joist floor system are described in depth, as well as how to best coordinate with your provider.

    Fielding Modifications with Ease
    Fielding Modifications with Ease

    While the structural engineer of record (SER) is ultimately responsible for joist field modification details, it is typically the joist manufacturer that provides the proposed modification details for SER review and approval. Direct communication is crucial to a successful modification.

    Experimental Investigation of Steel Joist Design for Ductile Strength Limit State
    Experimental Investigation of Steel Joist Design

    The purpose of this research is to investigate a ductile design methodology for steel joists where the primary strength limit state is characterized by tension-member yielding and large inelastic deformation, followed by a secondary strength limit state of compression-member buckling.

    BIM at work: Experiences in BIM-based Steel joist design
    Experiences in BIM-based

    In a true BIM approach, where joist design collaboration occurs early in the development process, the BIM team does not seek final documentation approval until they have completed the digital design and detailing of the steel joists within the as-built structural 3D steel model.

    BIM on Target

    By using BIM for the design of its new store, big-box retailer Target has been able to model the entire structural steel package, including joists, in 3D, chopping the timeline for shop drawings from as much as 10 weeks down to an ‘unheard of’ three-and-a-half weeks.
