2018 Wood Frame Construction Manual Changes – STD350

The Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) for One- and Two-Family Dwellings (ANSI/AWC WFCM-2018) has been updated and is referenced in the 2018 International Building Code (IBC) and 2018 International Residential Code (IRC). The 2018 WFCM uses gravity and lateral loads based on ASCE 7-16 Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures. This presentation will provide an overview of the significant changes in the 2018 WFCM relative to the previous 2015 edition. The WFCM provides code officials and designers with time-saving tools based on engineered and prescriptive solutions (based on structural engineering principles) for wood structures to resist anticipated lateral and gravity loads.
