Frank Woeste ator e-mail: Note that Chapter 2 also contains some necessary construction details. For More Wtcm For more specific information on course content, please contact Dr. The primary changes to the WFCM include: Chapter 2 provides minimum loads for buildings within the scope of this document for the purpose of establishing specific resistance requirements. The workbook heavily references the WFCM to aid in understanding how to use the time-saving tools and tables provided therein.


Permanent Bracing for Residential Metal-Plate-Connected Wood Trusses In this unit, the basics of permanent bracing design for wood trusses and the importance of contruction complete bracing system will be presented. Several resources available for shear wall design will be discussed and design results will be compared using the various resources.

Specifying and Constructing Floors to Accommodate Ceramic Tile and Stone The use of brittle floor covering materials requires carefully planning and coordination at the rough-framing design phase. Suppliers of building products used in the residential construction and their sales staff may benefit as well by enhancing their knowledge of a code-conforming whole building design.

These details have been derived from typical code provisions and are included in Chapter 2 for the convenience of wod designer. JavaScript seems to be disabled in your browser. The WFCM provides engineered and prescriptive design requirements for wood frame construction used in one and two-family dwellings. For a volume license the PDF is licensed to the person in which it is assigned.

The WFCM includes general information on loads and resistances. We recommend users of early versions of Internet Explorer to update to Version 10 or later. In general, the framing systems described in the WFCM utilize repetitive member wood assemblies.

Prescriptive details for commonly required lateral and diagonal bracing needed to meet the assumptions of the truss design drawings for residential applications will be reviewed. The limitations of applicability are provided in Chapters 2 and 3. Chapter 3 provides several prescriptive solutions derived from Chapter 2 load requirements. Use on a local area network or other network is not permitted. The WFCM represents state of the art design for one and two family dwellings mnaual regions with high winds, high seismic risk or large snow loads.


Provisions contained in this document that are not included in the IRC are considered good practice recommendations. The latter tends to provide more conservative results. Shear Wall Design Examples Several design tools and standards to assist engineers, architects, and building officials with the design of shear walls are condtruction. This unit will provide an overview of the significant changes to the DCA 6 and include several examples showing application of the guide.

This unit will provide a chapter by chapter overview of the WFCM which includes provisions for designing wood frame structures for wind, snow, and seismic loads. In order to improve in-service performance of the tile or stone covering, details for the installation of span-rated wood-structural underlayment for a two-layer wood substrate system will be presented.
