## VIII Ceiling Joist Observation

If we try to look at the roof ceiling
plan, we can observe that the longest
span can be found in Ceiling Joist 3D (CJ3D). From here, we can already say that
among the Ceiling Joist schedule CJ-3D
will govern in maximum dimension since
these members are constant.
Because of this reason, I the
designer decided not to show all the
computation of ceiling joist design.
NOTE:
The designer have computed all
floor joist schedule but because of the
repeatable solution, I decided not to show
all the solution, instead only those
and span.

## Floor Joist Observation

If we try to look at the ground floor
framing plan, we can observe that the
longest span can be found in ground floor
Joist 1C with a span of 2500mm (GJ-1C).
depending upon the type of area inside
the dwellings. From here, we cannot say
immediately what schedule of joist will
govern. From this reason we will then try
to compute GJ-1B, GJ-1C.
NOTE:
The designer have computed all
floor joist schedule but because of the
repeatable solution, I decided not to show
all the solution, instead only those
and span.

## In the preceding computation we have found the

following
dimensions of Ground joist according to their area of
analysis.
For bending, we have computed a safe Ground joist
dimension
of 50x100mm, 50x100mm for shear and finally a
safe value of

the safest
value to be applied in our Ground joist 1B is
