Steel Bar Joists Tyler Wells
Academy Sports Building • The building we chose is Academy Sports. • It is located in Opelika Alabama. • Academy is a sporting goods store. • Academy is a single floor building. • The exterior wall are constructed out of CMU blocks. • The roof is supported by steel joist and girders. The roof is metal decking.
Structural System • In Academy, the Load travels from the roof, to the joists, to the joist girders, to a CMU wall. • Once the load reaches the wall, it then travels down to the building foundation and then to the ground.
