Disaster-resistant Wood Frame Construction - Designing to Resist High Wind, Seismic, and Snow Loads - Part 2: Wall and Floor Design (STD336)

The Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) for One- and Two-Family Dwellings (ANSI/AWC WFCM-2012) is referenced in the 2012 International Building Code and 2012 International Residential Code.  The WFCM contains tabulated prescriptive and engineered design provisions based on ASCE 7-10 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures and covers connections, wall systems, floor systems, and roof systems. A range of structural elements are included such as sawn lumber, structural glued laminated timber, wood structural panel sheathing, I-joists, and trusses. 

Using Design of Wood Frame Buildings for High Wind, Snow, and Seismic Loadings (2012 WFCM Workbook) this hands-on session provides a design example, helpful checklist, and background information for design of a wood-frame structure in accordance with the 2012 WFCM. Using plans from a 2-story residence, participants prescriptively design the structure to resist high wind, seismic, and typical residential gravity loads. Part 2 will deal with design of wall and floor systems, including shear wall design and appropriate connections between roof, floor, wall, and foundations to maintain load path. Participants are strongly encouraged to view the free recorded webinar on Significant Changes to the 2012 WFCM (STD315) and Part 1 of this series: Load and Roof Story Design prior to this webinar.

Please note that for this webinar you will need to have the 2012 WFCM and 2012 WFCM Workbook readily available.  Click here to download the 2012 WFCM and download/print the 2012 WFCM Workbook.  You should have attended or watched the recording for Part 1 before participating in this webinar.

Eligible attendees will qualify for ICC and AIA education credits.
