This is part one of a two-part series. Part one will discuss and demonstrate the methods to first evaluate existing open web steel joists and Joist Girders for revised loading conditions. This webinar parallels the Steel Joist Institute publication, Technical Digest No. 12 “Evaluation and Modification of Open Web Steel Joists and Joist Girders.”


This webinar is provided by the Steel Joist Institute. Participants can earn 1.5 PDHs.


  • Identify the key characteristics of in-place joists
  • Teach you how to determine who the original manufacturer was and whether they can provide any additional documentation
  • Show you how to verify the original design loads and evaluate the joist for the new loads
  • As part of the evaluation, procedures will be discussed to identify the joist components and connections that are inadequate

Note: Since many companies are working from home due to Covid-19, please let us know if you need individual links for remote attendance for your site registration.

Technical Digest 12


Technical Digest 12 concerns itself with the evaluation of existing steel joists and joist girders to carry additional loads not accounted for in their original design. The technical digest also addresses situations where the configuration and/or the original geometry of the steel joists or joist girders need to be modified in the field.
