Seismic and Wind Design Considerations for Wood Framed Structures – 0.6 CEUs

City of Fremont – Thursday, November 15, 2018

The overall strength of a building is a function of all of the components – roof, walls, floors, and foundation – working together as a unit. This course will provide a top-to-bottom overview of lateral design for wood framed structures. Topics of discussion include lessons learned from natural disasters, load path continuity, updates to the California Building Code, California Residential Code, and shear wall design alternatives. An update on the joint research project of APA – The Engineered Wood Association, University of British Columbia (UBC), and USDA Forest Products Laboratory examining the variations of shear walls with code-allowable openings will be shared. This study examines the internal forces generated during these tests and evaluates the effects of size of openings, size of full-height piers, and different analysis techniques, including the segmented method, the perforated shear wall method, and the force transfer around openings method. Full-scale wall tests as well as analytical modeling were performed. Asymmetric piers, multiple openings, and C-shaped sheathing were investigated and rational design methodologies in accordance with the California Building Code have been created.  Alternatively, a discussion of the CRC wall bracing requirements for wood framed residential structures will also be included.
