Webinar: Wood Shear Wall Seismic and Wind Design Example per 2018 WFCM and 2015 SDPWS

October 3, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Two AWC standards utilized throughout the nation for a code compliant design of wood shear walls are 2018 Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) for One- and Two-Family Dwellings and 2015 Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic (SDPWS). The WFCM has recently been updated and contains both a prescriptive and engineering design approach. Although the prescriptive design will tend to provide more conservative results than the more efficient engineered design, designers may arrive more readily at a solution. This seminar includes examples of seismic and wind shear wall designs for segmented and perforated shear walls, utilizing the WFCM and the SDPWS along with a comparison of the results.
