DES230A – Wind and Gravity Design for Tall Walls in Wood Buildings
Credit: 0.1 ICC CEU
Many regions of the United States are at risk of high winds from hurricanes, downbursts, and thunderstorms. When designed and constructed in accordance with modern building codes and standards, wood construction has a history of proven performance in meeting the challenges of high wind loads. For any project, a thorough understanding of the interaction between wind loads and material properties is key to the design process. This article will address design considerations and the publications in which they can be found. The article also includes a design example of a loadbearing tall wood stud wall design.
