DES413-4 - Seismic Example WFCM/SPDWS Comparison 2015
There are several design tools and standards to assist engineers, architects, and building officials with the design of shear walls. Prescriptive approaches such as those outlined in AWC's 2015 Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) tend to provide conservative results. Engineered approaches such as those outlined in AWC's 2015 Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic (SDPWS) typically result in more efficient designs. This course will outline several resources available for shear wall design, compare design results, and provide an example for resisting seismic loads on a structure using both the WFCM and SDPWS.
Upon completion of this course, participants will:
Education credits will be awarded.
