Disaster Resistant Wood Frame Construction Example Using 2015 WFCM (STD340) - A Series of 4 Webinars in Recognition of Building Safety Month
These courses use Design of Wood Frame Buildings for High Wind, Snow, and Seismic Loadings (2015 WFCM Workbook) which provides a design example, helpful checklist, and background information for design of a wood-frame structure in accordance with the 2015 WFCM (referenced in the 2015 IRC and IBC). Using plans from a 2-story residence, participants prescriptively design the structure to resist high wind, seismic, and typical residential gravity loads. An overview of appropriate loads to apply to residential structures will be provided. Participants will work through roof, wall, and floor system designs including shear walls and appropriate connections between roof, floor, wall, and foundations to maintain load path.
