SBCA Technical Webinar: Floor Truss Deflection Limits & Vibration Issues

Date: 
Wed, Mar 8 2017 1:00pm to 2:00pm (CST)

While the perception of floor vibrations is subjective from one person to the next, overall floor systems that exhibit lower deflections and less acceleration from vibration sources tend to be perceived better than other designs. Likewise, there are circumstances when the deflection requirements for a structure that uses floor trusses as structural members are questioned. The current residential and commercial building codes provide minimum design requirements for loads and for deflection of structural floor members, which also apply to floor trusses. The building designer may specify more stringent requirements.

Please join us on Wednesday, March 8 from 1-2 pm Central for a webinar presented by Jim Vogt, P.E., to discuss deflection requirements for a number of floor topping/covering related products as well as other key concepts regarding floor truss design.

The information presented in this course is useful for building officials, component manufacturers, design professionals and framers. The program is AIA approved and continuing education credit (CEU) and professional development hours (PDH) are available. This webinar is free to attend; for participants who need a certificate demonstrating CEU credits, the cost is $25.
