The specifying professional must calculate the maximum moment and shear caused by the various loading conditions and select the KCS series joist that provides the required moment and shear capacity.

This information is more specifically addressed in the Vulcraft Steel Joist and Joist Girders catalog. However, in certain instances, the Vulcraft engineer may be able to recommend modifications to the bridging requirements.

Review any conflicting conditions with the Vulcraft engineer to determine what options are available. A row of diagonal bridging is required to be located near the support for lateral stability. This bridging must be installed as the joists are set in place. This requires the joist or girder seat to be supported by a haunch or seat angle. Additionally, the bottom chord extensions must be welded to the stabilizer plate on the column.

The size of the top moment plate, seat angle or haunch, stabilizer plate and all required welds are to be determined by the specifying professional.

When the top chord extensions exceed these limits deeper bearing seats will be required and should be reviewed with the Vulcraft engineer for guidance on the minimum seat depth. In all instances it is important to make sure that proper clearance is provided for the top chord extension. Vulcraft has the ability to design for point loads that occur at any panel point along the top or bottom chord of the joist.

In addition Vulcraft can design for the effect of a point load located at any point along the top or bottom chord. These loads must be clearly defined to avoid duplicate application or missing the load entirely. It is possible to have different lengths of the cantilever and the main-span; however, the supporting joist design must be reviewed.

The ability of the supporting structure to resist this horizontal load must be considered by the specifying professional. This issue must be looked at on a case by case basis and should be reviewed with a Vulcraft engineer. The magnitude of load that can be transferred depends upon the chord and seat member sizes used in the girder. This information is more specifically addressed in the joist girder section of the Vulcraft Steel Joist and Joist Girders catalog. As with any special condition, this issue should be reviewed with a Vulcraft engineer.

Please contact the Vulcraft location that will be fabricating your project to discuss any restrictions. Composite design loads include:. The bundle tags shows standard erection warnings, plant location, job number, list number, part quantity, part number, paint color, date and time built. NOTE: The shop primer is not intended to be a finish coat and must not be expected to perform like one. Please contact the Vulcraft location that will be fabricating your project to discuss available primer options.

Weights shown in the Economical Joist Guide are based on the weight of Vulcraft manufactured joists. Since Vulcraft, in some cases, has more available material sizes, the Vulcraft weight is less than other manufacturers.

Specific requirements for clearances in a given joist should be reviewed with a Vulcraft engineer. What Best Describes You? Leave This Blank. Site Map E-Newsletter Sign-up.

Steel Product design can be performed on standard steel joists. The steel products are automatically optimized based on minimum weight and based on the criteria specified in the Design Rules spreadsheet. There are options for Steel Joist Databases which have different capacity values. The various Steel Product databases may be accessed from the Beams spreadsheet by clicking in the Shape field and then clicking.
