Overview
Wood framing is conducive to meeting the challenges of wind-resistive design. Among its characteristics, wood can carry substantially greater maximum loads for short durations of time as is the case in high-wind events. Wood buildings also tend to include multiple and often redundant load paths for resistance to wind forces. This presentation covers the design of a building’s wind-resisting system, including wind load calculations, diaphragms, shear walls and collectors. Load path continuity is discussed, as well as unique design considerations for designing wood-frame structures to resist uplift, in-plane, and out-of-plane wind loads. Design examples are presented to illustrate relevant design procedures and detailing best practices.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Review the parameters for building wind load calculations per ASCE 7 and the International Building Code.
  2. Examine the three main types of building wind loads (uplift, in-plane, and out-of-plane) and design considerations associated with each.
  3. Discuss common wood-frame shear wall, diaphragm, and tie-down systems.
  4. Recognize the benefits of redundancy in wind-resisting wood-frame systems.
