The Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) for One- and Two-Family Dwellings was updated and is designated ANSI/AWC WFCM (Figure 1). WFCM. • Wood Frame Construction Manual. • WFCM uses ASCE 7- 10 wind design provisions. • IRC uses ASCE wind design provisions. The Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) for One- and Two-Family Dwellings was developed by the American Wood Council (AWC) Wood Design.

The WFCM provides engineered and prescriptive design requirements for wood frame construction used in one and two-family dwellings. Shear Wall Design Examples Several design tools and standards to assist engineers, architects, and building officials with the design of shear walls are available.
2012 Wood Frame Construction Manual for One- and Two-Family Dwellings & Commentary to the WFCM
This article provides an overview of the significant changes in the WFCM relative to the previous edition. Attendees will learn about the engineering basis of prescriptive tables used to size wood members and connections to resist high wind, seismic, and snow loads in the wall and floor systems.
Due to minimal design information on elevated foundations in the building code, this webinar is intended to provide some design basics that may not be readily available. Understand hold down design. Be familiar with the significant changes between the and WFCM.
Vertical and lateral load paths will be described including the role of shear walls in buildings. There are separate wind speed maps for each Risk Category in the code, and Exposure D will become applicable again in hurricane prone regions. This unit will provide an overview of the significant changes to the DCA 6 and include several examples showing application of the guide.
Therefore, it is perfectly acceptable to use Chapter 3 provisions for parts of a design and Chapter 2 for other parts. Wind speeds are higher, but load factors for design are also adjusted so that the net effect will be a reduction of wind pressures in some regions Line Understand the WFCM uses and scope limitations. In addition, this presentation will provide an overview of the significant changes in the WFCM relative to the previous edition. Traditional methods of providing for uplift resistance with additional tie-downs at shear walls can be cumbersome and expensive.
WFCM Commentary only available with purchase. Chapter 3 provides several prescriptive solutions derived from Chapter 2 load requirements.
WFCM Editions This option is mobile friendly and compatible with all devices, including mobile tablets and smart phones. There are several design tools and wccm to assist engineers, architects, and building officials wfvm the design of shear walls.
This article originally appeared in the Winter issue wffcm Wood Design Focus published by the Forest Products Society and is reprinted with permission. Attendees will learn to use prescriptive tables to size wood members and connections to resist high wind, seismic, and snow loads in the wall and floor systems. Frank Woeste ator e-mail: 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.
A range of structural elements are covered, including sawn lumber, structural glued laminated timber, wood structural sheathing, I-joists, and trusses.
He may be reached at bshowalter awc.
Be familiar with specific provisions of the building codes referencing the WFCM. Be able to analyze format and content within the WFCM.
Reference to connector products available in the marketplace will be made without identifying particular manufacturers. This webinar builds on the three previous Load, Load Path, and Connections webinars to describe how loads must be transferred through the building to reach the foundation system.
Understand the concepts of load path for wind pressure applied to buildings Understand how loads are distributed into foundations Be able to describe various foundation systems best-suited for wind and flood loads Understand the most likely foundation failures attributable to wind only Equivalencies: Be able to describe how loads are distributed to buildings both vertically and horizontally Be able to describe several different load paths that are critical to improved building performance during high winds Be able to recognize structural configurations or significant loading in building framing that might present construction challenges to framing continuous load paths Be able to recognize construction defects that could potentially fail under high wind loads Equivalencies: Capacities are based on provisions in the NDS and have been verified by full scale testing.
American Society of Civil Engineers. Chapter 2 provides minimum loads for buildings within the scope of this document for the purpose of establishing specific resistance requirements. Use on a local area network or other network is not permitted.
Learn the appropriate high wind, seismic, and snow loads to apply to residential structures based on code-referenced load standards.
Design values for structural lumber, structural glued laminated glulam timber, and fasteners were incorporated in the integral Supplement of the WFCM. Expand all Collapse all. The design example uses plans from a 2-story residence as the basis for a structural design to resist wind, seismic and snow loads.
