A back-propagation neural network (BPNN) has been trained to help building designers and engineers in designing or analyzing steel bar joist flooring systems. The NEUROFLOOR BPNN allows design professionals to speed up the design process by enabling them to start off with a reasonable steel bar joist trail size. Similarly, reasonable floor trail loads for analyzing an existing structure can be determined.
