What is the load table for floor joists?

This load table applies to joists with either parallel chords or standard pitched top chords. When top chords are pitched, the carrying capacities are determined by the nominal depth of the joists at the center of the span. Standard top chord pitch is 1/8 inch per foot. If pitch exceeds this standard, the load table does not apply.

What is the maximum capacity of a KK joist substitute?
