As an inspector how can I verify the panel point and flange loads of a steel bar joist, example a 12k? Sometimes the engineer states the maximum load in his notes however I have found this not to be typical. I do not want to contact each engineer on every job I visit to ask what the loads are for the bar joist therefore I would like to know if there is a way I can verify the loads without calling the engineer.
